The outbreak of Coronavirus has affected not only human lives but has severely affected many business sectors too, bringing a situation of crisis in the global economy. We understand why quarantining is so important to save our lives, but at the same time, we can’t ignore that a situation of the great depression is approaching us. The agriculture sector is the foundation of any economy, and it is now an inextricably important area that needs to be kept away from the ill-effects of the pandemic to save the world.
