LAHORE: Kissan Board Pakistan (KBP) and NGO Faith Matters have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to keep farmers updated with the latest prices of agriculture commodities, besides solving their problems. According to KBP sources here on Thursday, farmers were facing severe problems regarding the purchase of agriculture commodities because mill owners and middlemen were exploiting the growers by buying their crops at very nominal rates. The sources said that farmers were not aware of the international market rates of the commodities due to which they were suffering at the hands of exploitative elements.
