    143 in 152 days: Amravati is new farm suicide capital of Maharashtra

    Amravati district in Maharashtra has witnessed a surge in farmer suicides, surpassing Yavatmal. Causes include crop failures, financial distress, and reliance on moneylenders due to inadequate banking credit. Addressing crop yield variability, financial support, and credit availability is crucial to reduce stress and prevent further loss of life.
