Extension works to help support South Carolina’s $42 billion agriculture and forestry industries. Any collected data will be used in aggregate form. Survey results may be shared with Extension faculty, staff and /or outside organizations in an effort to further understand the impact COVID-19 has had on South Carolina agriculture.
