Introduction of big farm like those in the western countries is the solution for minimizing output cost of farm production, Dr. Shamsul Alam of Planning Ministry suggested to government for transforming agriculture for 21st century. He is also against imposition of higher import duty on import agricultural commodities like rice and sugar. It’s hurting `consumer sovereignty’, he said yesterday in the 15th Annual Conference of Bangladesh Agricultural Economist Association.
What’s a solution! Reading this suggestion, only one sentence came in mind, `we are fortunate, we are not economist!’ Many of unfortunate marginalized farmers is feeding the country people, now fortunate agriculturists putting his legs on the unfortunate fate of these millions of marginalized farm producers. What’s an education?
