For the last one year, farmers have been protesting demanding their basic rights. The hands that feed us are not being able to able fend for themselves. A farmer from Jalna district, Maharashtra, destroyed 400 kgs of cauliflower that he had grown over months. The reason? The price that he was getting for 400kgs of cauliflower was just Rs 442.
As of March 16, 2018, the price for cauliflower across cities in Maharashtra is Rs 90 per quintal in Islampur, Rs 200 per quintal in Pandharpur, Rs 285 per quintal in Nashik, Rs 350 per quintal in Kolhapur.
So, what does a farmer do in such a situation where he had to spend money on transport as well? He destroyed all his crop.
Recently, Tamil Nadu farmers discarded harvested tomatoes into lake beds. Tomato price fell from Rs 20 to Rs 2 this month.
