COVID-19 Survey: AgriMag Results

We know that COVID-19 and the lockdown have had an impact on the agricultural industry, so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to do a survey to see how much it is being affected and how we can help businesses recover from these unfortunate circumstances.

The survey we conducted was sent to all the dealers we have in our database and we would like to thank everyone who responded. Please view the survey questions and results below.

Conclusion:

  • Even though a big part of the agricultural sector was not subjected to lockdown, it was still negatively affected by it. The majority of responders stated that less than 25% of their staff are operational and that most of them haven’t made sales during the lockdown period.
  • It’s clear that the lockdown has already affected customer purchasing behaviour and the majority of responders agreed that customers will hold back spend, which will greatly impact the agricultural business environment.
  • Even if lockdown ends, it will still greatly affect agricultural shows.
