Latham Seeds Delivers Hometown Service during COVID-19
During this challenging time, our focus remains on meeting the needs of farmers. We’re humbled to work together to produce feed, fiber and fuel for the world.
Livestock must get fed, and crop will soon be planted. The critical responsibilities of food and agriculture workers directly support the livelihoods of all Americans, as well as strengthen our nation’s economy and its security. That’s why the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has deemed agriculture a critical industry in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, exempting it from restrictions on the movement of commodities, food and vital production inputs. The declaration covers the full range of occupations in food and agriculture, such as those who produce or transport fertilizers, care for livestock, or engage in crop production.
This DHS declaration allows Latham Hi-Tech Seeds to continue conditioning, bagging and shipping seed. Latham® dealers and their customers can expect the delivery of quality inputs for the planting season as Latham’s truck drivers will continue transporting our products without interruption.
Spring planting is just around the corner, and each spring we plant hope. We’re living and working in unprecedented times, but together we will get through this!
