Irish Independent - Farming - - FINANCE -

Farmers protest against soar­ing farm op­er­at­ing costs and plung­ing pro­duce prices in New Delhi, In­dia, last week. They are de­mand­ing bet­ter crop prices, drought relief and loan waivers against the back­drop of wa­ter short­ages and de­clin­ing pro­duc­tiv­ity. Fig­ures from In­dia’s Na­tional Crime Records Bureau in­di­cate that 296,438 farmers have killed them­selves since 1995.
