Wheat Prices Plummet in Punjab, Farmers’ Plight Deepens

wheat prices plummet in punjab, farmers' plight deepens

Wheat prices in Punjab have hit rock bottom, forcing farmers to sell below the government’s set price due to lack of intervention. Private buyers offer even lower rates, worsening farmers’ plight. With no procurement drive launched yet, farmers plan to protest. Rising input costs exacerbate their losses, potentially leading to bankruptcy. Additionally, delayed procurement campaigns and unexpected rains further threaten crop yields.
