Coronavirus began in early 2020 while posing a serious threat to agricultural production. A natural sucker for assessing risk between family farms provides answers. Unlike other types of risk, this disease does not directly affect family farms. It affects economic conditions, rising and falling prices for commodities and raw materials, relations between countries and their governments, and comments from experts and economists around the world. In countries already experiencing severe food insecurity, the issue is not only access to food, but also food production. The spread of coronavirus in Iran will also have a major impact on the domestic economy, agriculture, environment, and food. The damage caused by the Covid-19 epidemic to the agriculture and food industries is largely due to decreased demand, restrictions on importing and exporting agricultural and food products, and a reduction in the seasonal workforce due to the ban on driving and the closure of companies that produces agricultural products, packaging, and produce. Finally, if the spread of the coronavirus is not controlled, the damage will increase significantly. This will make the continuation of many businesses involved in agricultural and food production a serious challenge. The economic, health and social impacts of COVID-19 have direct and indirect links to the natural environment and to the way agri-food systems are organized. On the other hand, the growing environmental constraints in Iran reduce the potential of the agricultural sector to play a key role in the economy and ensure food security. Covid-19 therefore forces national programs and budgets to cope with growing ecological constraints. Therefore, the present case study refutes the hypothesis that Covid-19 has no effect on food security in Iran.
