Following a shortage in vegetable supplies, currently China faces an over supply in the vegetable market. As a consequence a rapid decline in the vegetable prices is having a serious impact on the lives of farmers. It is said that this unexpected decline was the direct cause for some farmers to commit suicide. The Chinese government has taken actions to protect farmers from greater losses.
