Agriculture

An amazing article on agriculture. Finally, not much of that same old theories.

Today a farmer gets a fraction of the final retail price while a substantial portion of the prices that we pay for our food goes to the retailers, wholesalers, middlemen and others.

Isnt it good that companies like Reliance are striking deals directly with the farmers(here and here and here). Granted that they wont pay the farmers substantially higher, but atleast, the whole chain of moneylenders and middlemen can be eliminated. Better for both farmers and consumers.
