MUMBAI, INDIA — Farmers in India said the government’s state-mandated price for new season wheat is not enough to cover costs, Reuters reported. 

For more than eight months, farmers have camped on major highways to New Delhi in opposition of farm laws that they say will hurt their livelihoods and benefit large corporations. 

The government raised the price it will pay for new-season wheat by 2% to 2,015 rupees ($27.39) per 100 kg, Reuters said. 

Farmers said the increase is too low, especially since overall costs are increasing for fuel, labor and fertilizers.
