The adversity of “good harvest – falling price”, “high price – harvest loss” is no longer a strange thing for farmers, which reflects the reality of farmers’ losses in an unsustainable and high-risk productive agriculture.

What are the risks that farmers are facing? Let’s find out with Đạt Foods!

1/ Price risk

Due to the fragmented linkage and mutual support in the production and consumption of agricultural products, farmers cannot decide the selling price of their own agricultural products, but the price is mainly based on traders. Price and quantity are not predetermined through the contract, which leads to the risk of lost and forced price in the end.

2/ Risk of unstable market

The output market of farmers still lacks a plan and it is is unstable because of being dependent on easy-going but risky markets like China (approximately 40%). In addition, due to inefficient farming affecting the quality of agricultural products, it is difficult for farmers to come into more stable markets such as Europe, America, South Asia and West Asia.

3/ Risk of unsustainable farming

The usage of fertilizers and pesticides has caused water and soil pollution. It is also the cause of climate change, making natural disasters and epidemics more serious, which is the cause of crop losses.

4/ Health risk

It is important that, frequent contacting to chemicals and pesticides negatively affects the health of farmers. They cause lung dysfunction, liver damage, defects, immune system suppression, and other toxicity.
