    Day 3: COVID-19 lockdown locks down farmers’ income A farm crisis is staring at us. In the last few days, we have seen so many examples of farmers throwing away their produce due to crash in the prices. There is a great deal of distress. Two farmers, who were unable to sell their produce, have committed suicide in the first week of lockdown (one each in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka). It is a grim situation for both farmers as well as agricultural labor.

    Understanding the dire need of the farmers, DBRS has been reaching out to the farmers who work as daily laborer’s in the farms owned by landlords. 798 Families from 18 villages in and around Nedugadu, Karaikal have been assisted with dry ration.
