|Thousands of acres of wheat and barley have been destroyed by these farm and crop fires over the past few weeks and Kurdish people have been killed and injured protecting their crops and land. Just one of these crop fires can remove a small farmers entire income for a year, how are they meant to pay their bills and feed their families, on top of that they need seed to plant for next years crop, to which there is no guarantee of sufficient or good rain with added probems of rivers being dammed? In some of these fires even necessary farming equipment like tractors have been burnt!|
