Two generations of cotton farmers, Jagadish Dhannanlal Patidar, 54, a farmer leader, stands in a Fairtrade cotton farm with his son, Amit Patidar (who had studied Advertising in college) in Karhi, Khargone, Madhya Pradesh, India on 12 November 2014. Jagdish says that he has a lower turnover of workers because they are fairly paid, and Amit wants to continue farming Fairtrade cotton while putting his advertising knowledge into growing the business. He uses the internet a lot to get weather reports which help him with farming decisions. Photo by Suzanne Lee for Fairtrade
