Imperilled farmers

Imperilled farmers

Persistently low grain prices are adversely affecting our farming communities. The current situation is not only threatening the livelihoods of our farmers but also jeopardizing the future of agriculture in the country. Despite the tireless efforts of our farmers to produce high-quality grains, they are facing financial hardships due to the depressed market prices, which do not reflect the true value of their hard work, dedication, and the significant investments they make in their farms.

It is imperative for policymakers, agricultural organizations, and stakeholders to come together and find sustainable solutions to address this pressing issue. Immediate action is needed to ensure fair pricing mechanisms, provide financial support, and promote market access for our farmers. I urge our policymakers to prioritize the well-being of our farmers and take decisive actions to ensure transparent pricing policy during these challenging times. Our farmers are the backbone of our economy and food security, and it is our collective responsibility to ensure their success and prosperity.
