Delays in getting tractor parts threaten efforts to complete farm work

Parts delays are threatening efforts to get work done on the farm.

In southeast Missouri, some producers say that they cannot find parts. Pat Hobbs tells Brownfield Ag News, the situation could get critical.

John Deere told him if the water pump goes out on a particular tractor, there is only one in the world that they know of.

Farmers and businesses across the economy are having trouble getting supplies as states reopen. Some analysts also say it is the result of trade wars.
