Sad to know that very few are wanted to go on farming, Most of the farmers children do not want to work as farmer. Farmers who are trying hard are being neglected and their produce have a very limited market. Most of the farmers ar poor. Our government are not paying attention to what the farmers need, prices of fertilizer, seeds, farm implements are not regulated. In most cases farmers could not even break even the expenses against the harvest.
