Madhya Pradesh: Farmers Suffer Huge Losses, Damage To Standing Crops

Sanwer (Madhya Pradesh): Farmers in the Sanwer region have suffered huge losses and damageáto their standing crops such as wheat and gram to weather fluctuations and economic uncertainties. The changing climate patterns have disrupted the traditional rhythms of farming. Farmers reported a significant reduction in yields, with anticipated harvests slashed by nearly half.

Despite daily arrivals of 6,000-7,000 sacks of wheat in the Indore market, prices ply below government-set rates. The promised support price of Rs 2,700 per quintal remains elusive, as wheat fetches only Rs 2,380-2,955 in auctions. Similarly, garlic yields have been hit by plummeting prices, leaving farmers in distress.

Farmers, like Arvind Singh Rathod from Muradpura, accused the government of hollow promises made before elections.á Before the elections, it was promised that the support price of wheat would be kept at Rs 2,700 per quintal, but the promise is being violated. In addition to that, damage to wheat crops is significant, other major garlic crops also suffered damage due to rough weather, causing huge financial loss to local farmers.
