A Facebook advertisement said ‘Wanted Farmers’. It added, “Dear farmer, need your support to produce healthy food for the society. Join hands with us to offer healthy & better life”.
The pay package is undoubtedly very ‘attractive’, taking into consideration the financial crisis that small & marginal farmers are facing in India.
The ad, which was released on behalf of the Tamil Nadu-based Keeraikadai said the interested farmers are given an annual package of Rs. 1.80 to 2.40 lakh. Also, they will get free food as well as accommodation.
