During congress of the International Seed Federation
Marco van Leeuwen reflects on the impact and opportunities of COVID-19

Even though farming and seed sector activities have been broadly exempted from restrictive measures, it is difficult to anticipate what the medium- and long-term impact will be. Seed is a foundational contributor in ensuring food security. Marco van Leeuwen (Board of Directors Rijk Zwaan) reflects on the impact and opportunities of COVID-19 during the annual congress of the International Seed Federation (ISF).
