AFBF reacts to Biden administration lifting H-2A COVID restrictions

The Biden administration is set to lift COVID restrictions on H-2A workers traveling from South Africa. It is welcome news for farmers and ranchers who are planning to employ almost 7,000 workers from the country this growing season.

Allison Crittenden with AFBF spoke to RFD-TV’s own Tammi Arender on what this means for the industry, how dependent farmers are on workers from South Africa, and the value of H-2A workers.
