Upcoming research by Professor Nilanjan Banik of Bennett University analyzes three interventions to alleviate distress for the marginal farmer: farm loan waivers, expanding end-to-end cold chain infrastructure, and reforming the APMC Act so to enable the introduction of electronic market.
Intervention in cold chain with an aim towards having a better post-harvest management results in economic benefits that far outweigh economic costs. Improper post-harvest management not only lead to crops and milk getting wasted, but also discourages small and marginal farmers to grow these high-value items.
