Market Demands Pesticides

“I grow beans, carrot, and beetroot in my 2 acres of land. I do chemical farming, I have no option, everyone is into chemical farming. We have labour problems, money issues, there is no other way. For iceberg (lettuce), broccoli we get germinated seeds from the company so our harvesting time is lesser.” Farmers such as Surendar use chemically germinated seeds supplied by the company for their farming so the harvesting time is shorter hence money can be made sooner.
