An economics professor who grew up in Ukraine says the country’s farmers have remained resilient throughout the war with Russia.

Viktor Khanzhyn with Nebraska Wesleyan University says agricultural output has been down the last two years, but that doesn’t tell the whole story.

“Farmers were out in the fields making it work,” he said. “Just like in personal life, whenever there is a big shock, initially it has huge impact. Then with time, humans have this remarkable ability to adjust.”

He tells Brownfield Ukraine was the fifth largest producer of wheat in the world prior to the war.
