nearly 3 quarters of the state of maharashtra is suffering drought and crop failure . farmers often take out loans to buy seeds and if they crops fail they can't pay back the money in the society kill it but it got. done with it there have been heavy loans because for the last couple of years there have been no rings there have been 4 or 5 suicides in our village the plight of farmers has been a major problem in india and recent years more than 300000 farmers have killed themselves in the past 25 years a study found a 5th of those deaths were due to climate change or even a marginal increase in rainfall let a few a suicide that here. the government has encouraged farmers to insure their crops against failure through a nationwide scheme they say they have distributed more than $60000000.00 to farmers in this district this year. on the condition of crop failure there is a prime minister's scheme and i will get the insured amount. but many of those who
are supposed to gain protection say it doesn't work sandy says insurers won't cover his silk farm and says he also can't get support it has a rich poor people the middlemen big door so it doesn't benefit the poor farmers. and our mentalist say what's really needed is for farmers to stop relying on crops like cotton and sugarcane which take lots of water to grow. if you look at b. it's continuously in drought because of sugar factories i think if this problem needs to be solved we should work on cropping patterns but changing types of crops and where and when they're grown will take time so back in the city pounded on more day weights and hopes the rains will come and he can go back to work and his fields elizabeth al-jazeera. still ahead here on al-jazeera thanks for coming up hosts

and they learned from their previous mistakes and they corrected them i think the team today created a lot of chances and they were also clinical in the end we had efficiency and they also played with consistency after scoring for brazil and that went against peru danielle's as has confirmed he's leaving his club parasang the 36 year old who spent 2 seasons with the french champions refused to extend his contract with the club and is now a free agents. captors head coach felix sanchez says his side are in the copa america to compete and not take selfies with lino massi cats are set to take on argentina in a decisive group game later on sunday and they're determined to make it to the next round both teams set on one point going into that match a draw will give katter a chance to go through asian cup champions are in the tournaments as guests. local to me that they're going to this will give us the opportunity to grow and acquire more experience playing matches at such
a level much as we like because the nature we have a good level and football is growing but let's be realistic the level that teams like argentina uruguay and colombia can demonstrate to the very height we have to adapt ourselves to face these great teams with such great players. face tournament debutantes namibia in the africa cup of nations that match getting underway shortly tanzania are back in the cup of nations for the 1st time since 1980 east africans kick off their campaign against senegal so with news for a 10 zinnia senegal star forward savion manet is suspended for this game. but there is no doubt one of the best team in the continent where you look at the players the calibers of players that. they want a new football if you want to be great you have to prepare yourself to compete with among the best algeria also take off their campaign on sunday against kenya sun i
am most caught up with the north african team at their pre-term and training camp in doha. the desert foxes as they are known are putting the finishing touches to their cup preparations 2 years ago all geria were eliminated in the 1st round in egypt a coach will be relying on the skills of key players riyad motorists a few for goalie and yes but he me. for the 1st on the africa cup of nations is being held in june and july it's convenient for players based in european leagues but it means matches will be played in the searing north african summer is challenging but i really think is a good idea i think it should have been done before to be honest because for for example for me as a player in england we always have a. no break during the. winter wintertime and we always have our fitness and some top gear during this time saw it
cuts a little bit of time with the club and we missed a lot of games fresh from winning the english premier league title for the 2nd time matches the city star riyad maharis is now targeting africa's top international prize for the unbelievable and amazing i think. i don't want to say it would be better than the premier league or not they will be something different and they will be like i think the emotion will be. despite all of fighting for the world cup 4 times algeria missed out on the finals in russia last year and they have won africa's biggest title once and that was by. in 1900 when they hosted it. this is competition has been expanded to include $24.00 teams with all jiri are drawn against sinegal kinney and tanzania of course it's not easy we're not let's say one of the favorite there is a big teams do we did the team who played the previous woke up for example. and.
there were i saw so strong you tried to analyze what if there were mistakes or just mistakes why we didn't win and the. home. we know is that we know that we know the reason now it's all about changing the situation and trying to improve algeria are hoping this will be the year the 3 decade wait to lift the biggest hartle in african football comes to an end fan hamlisch al-jazeera. and team japan have won their 1st event victory at the sale g.p. in new york city they raced past leaders australia in the 2 match final on the hudson river on saturday sixteen's competed in the 2 day event the sale series sees the world's fastest racing boats competing at events around the world. and that's all your support for now much more coming up later but for now it's back

try and stop this coup and it was that was when it happened and there was another federal general that was also killed in that attack now the army intelligence general said that the coup was meant to create chaos in division especially in the military he said that the military now though has control over the situation at their command posts around the country that the military is in control with the prime minister of the ahmed of course over the military iran's foreign minister zarif says tehran is in talks with a number of countries on using currencies other than the u.s. dollar for trade the move is being seen as a way for iran to buy a policy u.s. sanctions unless and washington's grip on global energy and commercial markets let's cross $2.00 as you barri into iran for the latest to tell us more about how this might work. well according to the foreign
minister nic they are trying to negotiate with certain countries and the foreign minister has identified some of them as china turkey russia india to try and set up a system a monetary system in order to go around these crippling u.s. sanctions now we don't have any specifics yet but we understand according to the foreign minister that this is what they're working towards and we know that the russians have said in the past they will do whatever they can to try to help iran bypass the u.s. sanctions because russia doesn't believe these sanctions that the united states has imposed on iran are very fair so we know that that's been in the weakening what is interesting now is that the foreign minister says that the iranians have actually signed certain agreements with these countries and they're in discussion to sign more so we're just waiting to get more detail but when this becomes operational it could provide a way for the reins to literally bypass the u.s.
sanctions and we've also heard from the iranian president hassan rouhani earlier today where he had to say said again that the drone has violated the u.s. drone that flew according to the iranians in the iranian air space and they shot it down he says that that drone is it has violated iranian sovereignty and it is an acts of aggression and he's urging the international community to do something he said this act will be responsible for more tension in the region of course referring to the current climate there we're witnessing between the united states and iran and the escalating tension between the 2 sides or adults with thanks very much to his job or the reporter. polls have just closed in istanbul where people have been voting in a controversial rerun of the marriage election in march the opposition candidate was declared the winner of the 1st votes but that result was an old after the ruling party filed a legal challenge over alleged irregularities and joins us now live from istanbul
