Angry farmers crushing tomatoes in India
While some are throwing away produce because they can't afford storage, others are getting a little more creative.
In a publicity stunt, outraged farmers in Chattisgarh are crushing their produce under trucks instead of accepting the going rate, which they see as insulting.
According to some, they were offered a mere 70 cents for 100kg of tomatoes.
The average per tomato price comes out to less than a penny which is quite a bargain to shoppers but devastating for the farmers.
Insulted and outraged the farmers thought their hard work would be put to better use in the streets. Farmers are looking for any sign of hope as the agricultural industry is crumbling. ■
