COVID-19 Update: Steps We're Taking


As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is now directly impacting all our communities, we want to assure you that we’re here for you – ready to listen, support and help navigate these challenges together.


In dealing with this fluid situation, our principal objectives are as follows:

1. To ensure the health, safety, and security of Hertz team members and their families.
2. To care for you and your farm and serve your needs during these unsettling times.


The changes we are making include enhancing cleaning and disinfecting policies, limiting in-person meetings, limiting person-to-person contact, staggering work hours, working remotely, among others.

These temporary changes may result in some inconveniences and slightly longer response times than normal. At this time, planting and field work will remain on track as it would in a normal spring.  The weather will be the primary variable, as much of the fertilizer has been applied and seed delivered.


As the coronavirus outbreak continues to evolve, we will follow the guidance of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and local health department, and we encourage you to do the same.


Take care of yourself and your family. We’ll continue to take care of your farm. We are all in this together.

If you have specific questions or concerns, please feel free to contact a farmland professional near you via phone or email.
