A photograph of a pile of dust obtained by sweeping a farmer’s warehouse after selling the harvest. Small and medium producers do not have the capacity to set the sale price of their crops. The more globalized the product is, the more vulnerable it will be to market fluctuations. The price of staple crops such as wheat, rice, corn, and soy is set in the Chicago Board of Trade in US dollars.

An average European farmer will use most of the income generated from the sale of their crops to pay the expenses of the production itself. If something remains from that income, it will be used together with the money of the subsidy to live. Other small and medium-sized producers in the world will sell their crops after the harvest, but with the money obtained, they will not always be able to pay for the food they need for the rest of the year when they do not have their products and will need to buy it in the market at different prices.
