The Wider Image: Pakistani farmers fight a losing battle to save chili crop
A truck is loaded with sacks of dried red chili peppers at the Mirch Mandi wholesale market in Kunri, Umerkot, Pakistan, February 23, 2022. "Last year, at this time, there used to be around 8,000 to 10,000 bags of chillies in the market," said trader Raja Daim. "This year, now you can see that there are barely 2,000 bags here and it is the first day of the week. By tomorrow and the day after, it will become even less.” REUTERS/Akhtar Soomro SEARCH "SOOMRO CHILI" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
