Dignity, not dole for farmers

Your article on SAZs was informative and inspiring. It is important that we lend dignity to the farming community, rather than dole.

Your article on SAZs was informative and inspiring. It is important that we lend dignity to the farming community, rather than dole. The multi-pronged approach described in your article would also encourage his descendants to continue in farming. I only hope the SAZ makes special provisions for the benefit of the small farmer, and is not yet again a way of siphoning off benefits to rich agricultural syndicates.
