Farmers often resort to distress selling when they anticipate bumper production. The efficiency of the farmers in getting more yield become curse for them.

While we often come across news about farmers committing suicide due to crop failure yet there are also stories of farmers not taking their produce to the market because of less remunerative price as a result of excess production. This happens because the cost of production does not support the harvest/marketing cost. 

We need seamless transfer of agricultural produce from the region of excess production to areas where that particular agricultural item is in demand. Say potato from Bengal to North East or onion from Maharashtra to Kerala etc. We need to formulate enabling laws like revamped APMC law that support free movement of agricultural produce across India. Also we need to support private investment in back end supply chain as well as corporate buyback for encouraging farmers
