QUESTION OF THE DAY
We are now in the middle of November but the commencement of the groundnut trade season and the farm gate price are yet to be announced.
Will the price offered be high enough to encourage farmers not to traverse the border to sell their nuts at a higher price or for buyers to enter the country to buy the nuts of farmers? Will farmers be paid cash for their nuts and not be given promissory notes? These questions are essential for a successful trade season.
