How deepening Covid-19 distress has left Indian women malnourished"

By: Scroll.in- November 10, 2022

“Depending on the stage of the life-cycle, adolescent girls, and women who are menstruating, pregnant or lactating have greater nutritional requirements. This needs to be placed in the context of the dietary gap that has already persistently marked women’s food consumption. During the pandemic, this gap has likely worsened – and is unlikely to be distributed equally/evenly amongst members of the same household – thereby affecting women’s nutritional status more adversely, as compared to men.”

"Which Weather Characteristics Affect Agricultural And Food Trade The Most?"

By: Eurasia Review - November 17, 2022

“Our main finding is that the key driver of trade, whether at the domestic or international level, is temperature in the place of origin. An increase in temperatures negatively affects a country’s ability to export agricultural goods, because it reduces yield and decreases agricultural labor productivity,”

“Trade is one of the key tools with which to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change, particularly in agriculture. If a country is affected by adverse growing conditions, such as drought, the ability to rely on foreign sources for food and agricultural products is a key element of the ability to buffer those sorts of shocks,”

By: Crop Producers - November 16, 2022

On Wednesday, November 9, the USDA released its latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates, or WASDE.

By: Farm Week Now - November 18, 2022

By: Prothomalo - November 20, 2022

"the government should clarify its steps for establishing control over the rice mill owners. The food ministry also has the responsibility to find out the reason behind the price hike. People are consuming rice more as the cost of flour, edible oil, daal (lentil) and other products has increased. It could be a reason for the price hike."
