FARMERS’ WOES

Farmers are the back bone of any society. They are exploited by all. If the crop is good, prices go down; distress sail is the result, as they are in no position to store perishables like tomato.

When prices go up, middlemen give advance money and corner to crop.

Farmers’ cooperatives are the solution. In this, we must learn from Gujarat, where I have seen banana plantations in several hectares of land. The coops have their own air conditioned ships to carry bananas to European countries.
