Giving farmers their due

Onion Wholesale price (Feb 28)

~Delhi Rs 11/Kg
~Chandigarh Rs 14.50/Kg
~Nashik Rs 7.65/Kg
~Patna Rs 15/Kg

Retail price (Feb 28)

~New Delhi Rs 27/Kg
~Chandigarh Rs 25/Kg
~Nashik Rs 20/Kg
~Patna Rs 20/Kg

But, farmers were getting Rs 2~4 Kg for their onions

What can we do so middlemen and retailers make less and farmers get a fair price??

Why arent ecommerce platforms buying direct from farmers?? more

What about Transportation Cost? Between Farmer and City Buyer, how many people are involved and their share? These are the factors between Farmer and Wholesaler and Retailer. more  
Integrate, rather than requiring coordinating so many agencies, each requiring a cut! Why a leviathan superstructure feeding middlemen? Technology easily becomes the infomediary! more  
Farmers are responsible for their plight today. MODI Govt. tried but farmers themselves were responsible for failure of farmer's bill. Why they did not start a counter agitation in support of the bill? Still, it is not too late. If they really want benefits, they can get better prices by removing middlemen margins. Start demanding re-introduction of Farmers bill. more  
Would the Farmers Bill feed the farmer? Farmers fed the nation, The still continue feeding us. Netizens comfortably passing judgements. Farmers are somatically immersed मिटटी से जुड़े हुए। Do netizens ever feel responsible, given their powers communicating across all geographies? Live life inside-out. Only then will all see that Grow food just enough yourself, feeding a single mouth, you will realise how arduous the job is. Protest करते हुए एक साल कोई मज़े में घर से बाहर बिताता है? पेट भरने पर बातें सूझती हैं! Yes, let ecommerce platforms buying directly from farmers. more
