Farmers – Kenneth Hlavinka, 52

Reporting Texas

Kenneth Hlavinka, a farmer of cotton, rice, sorghum, corn and soybeans discusses the impact that the Coronavirus has had on the farming industry, including overseas trade with China, and the impact of the virus on agricultural equipment sales in the United States. Hlavinka also details the current commodity situation:

“Cotton and corn have really been adversely affected. Commodity prices are horrible. Corn is trading for a lower price than it’s been since I can remember. I’ve seen cotton lower than it is right now, but cotton is also trading at a very low level. China has just quit buying our products right now.”
