Reuters offers insight on how India's farmers gathering record wheat crop, but cannot move it

Reuters offered insight into how India’s country-wide lockdown, introduced in late March to stem the spread of the new coronavirus, has led to a labor shortage across rural regions, crimping its biggest-ever wheat harvest and preventing the bagging and movement of the $26 billion worth of crops. The lockdown has severely hit India’s more than 7,000 wholesale food markets, which are the only channel for getting food supplies to India’s 1.3 billion inhabitants.
