A woman labourer sorts onions at a vegetable and fruit wholesale market in Chandigarh
A woman labourer sorts onions at a vegetable and fruit wholesale market in the northern Indian city of Chandigarh July 8, 2014. The country has produced a record harvest, but many farmers in the onion bowl of India's western state of Maharashtra have lost a large share of their crop damaged in storage, adding to the country's inflation woes. A doubling in retail prices across major cities is especially troubling for staples such as onions, an ingredient that is present in just about every Indian meal. Unseasonal weather, hoarding and price manipulation have in the past led to dramatic price rises, and the new administration of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is anxious to avoid the political fallout that has hit other governments over the cost of the food.

A police officer (L) looks on as Greenpeace activists hang a banner at the Estela de Luz (Pillar Of Light) monument during a protest against genetically modified seeds which they say threaten Mexican corn, in Mexico City May 16, 2013. Four Greenpeace activists climbed the monument to demand that Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto's government reject the commercialisation of genetically engineered (GE) corn seeds in Mexico. Genetically engineered corn does not exist in Mexico yet, but Greenpeace says, multinational firms have requested permission to plant their seeds in the country. The letters on the monument are part of a message that reads, "No OGM" (Genetically Modified Organism). REUTERS/Henry Romero (MEXICO - Tags: FOOD CIVIL UNREST SOCIETY ENVIRONMENT)

Light planes spray a mixture of dry ice, salt and other chemicals over Nakorn Sawan province in northern Thailand to induce rain February 3. Government cloud seeding operations aided by an unexpected monsoon moving in from China brought surprise but much-needed heavy rains across parched Thai farmland over the past two days. The welcome rain brought cheer to thousands of farmers in the country which is facing its worst water shortage in decades.

As soon as the weather allows, they should be flying east towards the Middle East, Asia, the Pacific Ocean, the US and the Atlantic, hoping to be back in Europe after a two-week trip.
