Unlike regular industrial conveyors, food and washdown material handling solutions must be constructed of sanitary and hygienic materials to meet rigorous safety standards and must be easy to clean, maintain and inspect.
Over the past decade, small local farms have been adjusting to increasing heat by switching out tried-and-true seed varietals for more heat-hardy varieties. By contrast, spring of 2022 has been unusually cold and wet-Seattle is experiencing its coldest spring since 1955.
Climate risks can directly affect crop production by reducing agricultural yields for some crops, increasing production volatility, and destabilising farmer incomes. On the one hand, oversupply could result in farmers receiving lower profits.
