Let’s pause a minute and ask ourselves these questions:
1. Do farmers wash their hands appropriately after maybe applying pesticides?
2. Do farmers leave the pesticide containers on the farms which was washed into the water body used for farming and drinking?
3. How are we helping our farmers to enjoy farming without accidents and loss of money?
As we celebrate this year’s National Farmers’ Day, let’s ponder over these questions.
