A man sprays pesticides on a cotton field in Meeran Pur village, north of Karachi September 26, 2014. Women make up the bulk of Pakistan's half a million cotton producers, but labour rights activists say they are often exploited by overseers, who often withhold their wages and may subject some of them to sexual harassment. Many women work in Pakistan's cotton fields for less than $2 a day. Last year, a group of around 40 women decided their low wages could no longer cover food and clothing for their families so they did something almost unheard for poor working women in rural Pakistan - they went on strike.

Nearly a decade ago, the Indian government ruled out a ban on the production and use of monocrotophos, the highly toxic pesticide that killed 23 children this month in a village school providing free lunches under a government-sponsored programme. Despite being labelled highly hazardous by the World Health Organisation (WHO), a panel of government experts was persuaded by manufacturers that monocrotophos was cheaper than alternatives and more effective in controlling pests that decimate crop output.

A Palestinian farmer sprays pesticide in a tomato field in the West bank village of Beit Ummar, north of Hebron September 9, 2012. Once the mainstay of the local economy, Palestinian agriculture in the rocky West Bank is in decline, with farmers struggling to protect both their livelihoods and their lands. Deprived of water and cut off from key markets, farmers across the occupied territory can only look on with a mix of anger and envy as Israeli settlers copiously irrigate their own plantations and export at will.

Farmers spray pesticide over a paddy field in Ayutthaya province, nearly 80 km (50 miles) north of Bangkok August 7, 2012. The Thai Rice Exporters' Association is expecting exports of no more than 6.5 million tonnes for the full year against 8 million to 10 million normally, and that means Thailand will probably lose its crown as the world's top rice shipper to India or Vietnam.

A tea garden worker sprays insecticide at the Durgabari tea garden estate on the outskirts of Agartala, capital of India's northeastern state of Tripura June 27, 2012. India's 2012 tea exports are likely to remain steady at last year's level despite negligible sales to Iran as poor output in other key producing countries ensure strong demand, a senior executive at the world's biggest tea producer said.

A farmer sprays pesticide at a paddy field in Bang-lane district of Nakhon Pathom province in the central rice areas of Thailand February 3, 2012. Thailand's government promised farmers a huge increase in the price of rice when it came to power last August but it is failing on all fronts: export prices have not held up, the state faces huge losses and many farmers have not benefited.
