#Agriculturallaws - Apprehensions - Truth

5. Under contract farming big companies will enter and exploit farmers .

Should there be investments in warehousing , post harvest technologies,processing ,grading,blue addition?

If answer is yes where will it come from ?
Governments have tried failed . Agro industries corps in all states gone bankrupt writing down public investment .cooperatives but for #amul there is no other success . Today biggest problem is storage losses ,and low value for agriculture commodities due to lack of processing .
Intellectuals who oppose it suggest where investment will come.We need investment here for agriculture to turn profit . Yes we need proper frame work to control corporates but foolish to throw the baby with bath water . #FarmersProtestDelhi #agriculturalreforms #contractfarming

Agricultural Acts - twisted facts Vs facts.

1. farmer can not sell his bag of rice in Assam from AP since it is one national market hence the act is not useful is twisting of fact.

Fact is with market yard check posts gone there will be freedom of movement of goods .
With freedom to buy outside market yards and within market yards competition will be more benefitting the farmer with a better price .market yards also improve their performance since there is competition . #FarmersAct2020
