Also following the social distancing norms is a big challenge for them. Though they are trying enough to follow the rules thoroughly. Farmers are saying that they need to till the land and sowing the seed to fulfil their needs.
The farmers are trying to follow the restriction of wearing a mask during a public appearance. But some of them facing a physical issue as the summer temperature are high while working on the field. They stated that it is quite difficult to wear a mask during working on the field.
