    Don-8217 t you think it-8217 s about high time the Government establishes a consistent agriculture policy based on motivating the farmers and driving towards self-sufficiency? I know that there are certain risk parameters inherent to these type of activities, but is it really the duty of the poor guys working very hard on their paddy fields to take the full risk of a bad harvest -8230 and the low prices when there is sufficient product available?

    I went to the MOON a few weeks back and the rice there is a lot cheaper even than burma. In some places it was as cheap as Rs 10/Kilo

    MR should take immidiate steps to import rice from the Moon.
