Why #farmers came on road today

This started with Modi Govt setting up Shanta Kumar Committee which gave its report in Jan 2015, recommending scrapping of Bonus given to farmers over MSP, & recommending "direct cash transfers" for PDS i.e. scrapping MSP procurement & FCI
Modi Govt accepted the recommendations, & curtailed states’ power to declare bonuses for wheat & paddy over & above the Min Support Prices fixed by the Centre. So, States could not give bonus to their farmers, Punjab, Haryana, M.P farmers & others used to get bonus, which stopped
Then from 2015 to 2019, Modi Govt's institutions like @NITIAayog kept on saying in public that Min Support Procurement is unviable Mechanism, then in 2019~20 reports Commission of Agriculture Costs & Pricing started recommending restricting MSP procurement from #Punjab & #Haryana

Historic decisions for the #agri sector with the ordinances announced by the Union Govt, creating a progressive path forward for India's farmers, intermediaries & agri-entrepreneurs. My take on the impact in simple terms, from a farmer/ agri-entrepreneur lens...

#Thread
#KhetSe
1/n
Previously, farmers with marketable surplus could only sell to Licensed buyers such as State & private mandis, APMC licenced cold storages/ warehouses/ Companies. But these buyers could sell to anyone! A very skewed market, right!? Farmer lost earning, Trader gained margins!
2/n
Further, with the Essential Commodities Act (ECA) Govt had the right to impose price or stock control on commodities or ban exports at any time. This created intense volatility & trust deficit. No entrepreneur small or large wanted to venture into this unpredictable quagmire.

Thread #AgriReforms
👇
New, organised & tech driven procurement/#marketing systems will only work as actual options for farmers if they manage to address the real constraints that #farmers face on ground, especially access to credit, inputs, storage, transport, & timely payments.
Farmers will not benefit from the newly announced reforms if they cannot overcome these constraints. While increasing competition for intermediaries is desirable, their elimination is a misguided/dangerous objective if one does not respect or replace the roles & risks they cover.
Even today the majority of farmers, especially small & marginal cultivators, sell their produce to largely unlicensed traders/intermediaries in Vill/local sites of exchange outside APMC. But, if farmers r bound by law to sell in APMC mandis, why r so many of them selling outside?

What did #famers get in #Budget, where @nsitharaman claimed, "Our Govt is committed to the goal of doubling farmers income by 2022"

P.S-Acc to Dalwai committee,"real income of farmer, should increase by 10.4%/year,which has been increasing less than 2.5% in last 5 years
@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA Govt allocates 9.3% of the budget to #Agri, allied,irrigation & #rural development, which was 9.8% last year. Factoring Inflation, Real Increase in allocation is actually negative.

Is this enough ?
Will this increase #farm income, prop up #rural demand ?

@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA @mkvenu1 @PreetiSMenon Govt allocated 1.58 lakh crore to #agri, allied sectors & irrigation i.e. 5.2% of the total budget. Last years budget had allocated 1.52 lakh crore, which was 5.45% of the budget i.e. reduced spending !

👉Will this double #farm income by 2022 ?🙄

Thread👉The MSP Fallacy

If an M.P asks a question in Parliament regarding #Farmer Income, it is a cast iron rule that @nstomar(#Agri minister) starts his reply with "Govt announces Minimum Support Prices for 22 mandated crops"; what he doesn't say is that only 6% farmers get MSP
@nstomar @Devinder_Sharma @waglenikhil @MonaAmbegaonkar @jayantrld @_YogendraYadav @GauravPandhi @jyotiyadaav @sakshijoshii @vijaita @svaradarajan Mantri Ji mentions "Union Budget 2018 announced to fix the MSP at 1.5 times of the cost of production". What mantri ji forgets to mention is that MSP is still fixed acc to A2+FL cost(input cost+family labour)rather than C2 costs(which include interest on value of land & machines)

Why India should not sign #RCEP

🇮🇳 signed Free Trade Agreements with ASEAN,Korea & Japan,with whom overall trade deficit increased to $41.8 billion 2019 from $15 bill in 2011 & $5 bill in 2006

Imagine d trade deficit spike with #China after RCEP, which is $ 53.6 billion
26.15% of the GVA from India’s #agri sector in 2016-17 was constituted by livestock. Further, 66.93% of the value of livestock output was from #milk i.e. roughly every fifth rupee in agri comes from #dairying. Now, imagine, opening this sector to cheap #milk imports thru #RCEP.😟
Canada allows a small amount of imported products duty-free/low tariffs. Higher amounts attract steep tariffs– 245% on #cheese or 298% on #butter, shielding Canadian farmers from foreign competition, & we on d other side r devising way to flood India with cheap imports thru #RCEP

Narmada Valley project had a target of irrigating 1.79 million Ha through a 74,000-km canal network. However, 40 years after the tribunal award, only 36% of d network--27,189 km--has been constructed. Gujarat could only supply irrigation water to 628000 Ha i.e. half its target.😏
Imagine the state of affairs of data fudging, when #Gujarat Govt claims in state assembly,that #agri growth is 11%/annum in 2018, but #CAG puts d figure at 3.6%.
👉U can believe in whatsoever u like, but the truth remains d truth, no matter how sweet the lie may taste
@rachitseth
#Gujarat Model
👇
The revisions of Narmada project’s command area are ad-hoc & not systematic. If there r #industries coming up near a town, the Govt will revise the command area, saying it is to bring drinking water to people, & these revisions r not disclosed to the #farmers.😏

Good morning #cdnag from #AGRI committee where we're holding an emergency meeting on the canola situation. First panel includes @ccga_ca, the @canolacouncil, Richardson International and Viterra. The room is full. #cdnpoli
Rick White says cash flow is top of mind for canola farmers. He says the feds need to look at increasing the APP limit beyond the $400,000 maximum.

"We have been asking for this change for quite a few years now and now is the time to do it," he says.
"Government leadership is critical," White concludes if a resolution is to be found.

Jim Everson is up next. He's from the Canola Council of Canada. #cdnag

2 : je ne suis pas anti- #bio, j’en achète même pour mes élevages
d’insectes (elle sont belle mes fourmis hein !)
Ceci étant dit et comme promis, je vais vous parler des #pesticides #bio. La majorité d’entre vous le sait, 4% vont l’apprendre.
Pour certains je ne vais que répéter des banalités mais c’est toujours bien de répéter ça ancre les choses…
Alors en Europe, nous avons un règlement #bio eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/… que vous pouvez lire dans toutes les langues EU . Allez y c’est instructif, un peu chiant aussi comme tous les textes règlementaires. Bon ce qu’on note quand même, c’est que le #bio c’est compliqué.

This Republican control over all parts of our government defies comparison. On second thought, it feels like a Biblical punishment..Remember the 10 Plagues of Egypt?
#RepublicanPlague #CrimesAgainstHumanity #RiseUp
First, the waters of the land of Egypt were to be turned into blood....
The Clean Water Rule protected smaller bodies of water, like streams and wetlands, from discharges of all kinds of pollutants. But not anymore: #RepublicanPlague #CleanWaterAct
The EPA has delayed implementation for 2 years as the agency “clarifies” (read: eliminates)the rule.The decision is a clear gift to industrial polluters who loudly protested the reg in 2015 & GOP lawmakers who have falsely claimed the rule regulates “puddles on private property.” Large freighter ship spilled red and yellow toxic sludge into waterway. People in small boats float on the spill.
