Two members of the Global Farmer Network—Kees Huizinga, Ukraine and Marcus Holtkoetter, Germany—met in DÃ¼sseldorf to explain the plight of Ukrainian farmers to members of the German Parliament. Their message:Â food security is being reduced as consequences of the war in Ukraine; Farmers need decisions now so crops can be planted.
Kornelis â€˜Keesâ€™ Huizinga has farmed in central Ukraine for 20 years, growing onions, carrots, wheat, barley, canola, sugar beet, corn, sunflowers and navy beans. They also have a modern dairy farm. Kees is a member of the Global Farmer Network www.globalfarmernetwork.org
