Contact U.S. Governors

Governors need to hear from our members – Agriculture is clearly listed as an essential critical infrastructure, by the Department of Homeland Security. Keeping farmers running with machinery, maintenance, and parts are essential to food production and our ability to support critical infrastructure needs across the nation.

Please advocate with your governor’s office to follow the federal guidelines related to which business are declared essential. Contact Info Below

Sample message for your Governor

I write to ask that you consider the essential role of manufacturers and marketers of farm equipment as you confront the competing demands presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. As foundational as agriculture is to this nation’s well-being, the equipment industry is equally foundational to the success of agriculture.

Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue has put the importance of the total ag industry in the proper perspective, noting that in World War II, we had agricultural deferments because the food supply chain was essential. He said this: “From the person that makes the equipment that supplies the farmers, to the seed, the fertilizer, the farmers that go day in and day out to produce this food—all are vital to our economy, and you are vital to our needs of America having a strong food supply.”

We are entering the spring season, the busiest time of year for farmers and the agricultural retailers who supply and support them. Missing even one day to plant, fertilize or apply crop protection can have significant negative impacts on fresh food and row crop production, as well as farm income. Without the availability of new equipment, parts and services, some crops will not get planted or properly maintained, and the supply chain—all the way to the consumer—will suffer. A well-functioning supply chain requires strength at every link: equipment manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and ultimately farmers, especially in this season.

I seek your assurance that in any actions you take, including executive orders, you define the work of these manufacturers and distributors as essential. Farm equipment is the first and foundational piece in the food production process. One could argue it is as essential as the land itself. Please safeguard the work of these businesses so they can continue to meet the needs of farmers who in turn meet the nutritional needs of the world.

Thank you for your attention.
