COVID Pandemic Expected to Harm Ag Research
Disruptions in the economy due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic are expected to cause significant disruption to much of the economy, including important agricultural research. The University of Arkansas System will feel the effects of these disruptions as much of their support comes from students. Campuses across the state, including the UofA have closed for the remainder of the semester. In addition, funding may be disrupted due to economic challenges facing governments and private industry.
