Aurangabad, Feb 11(ANI): Farmers are feeding their produce to animals because of sky rocketing vegetable prices

Ganpat Kisan Paraskar, a farmer said: “We’ve put one quintal of celery. Labourers are charging Rs 20 ($ 0.43) for harvesting them. The seeds for one quintal of celery stand at Rs 4,500 ($98). Taxes are also applied which is why we are incurring loss. So we have let it all off for the goats and other animals. We would have profited had the prices increased.” (ANI)
