APTOPIX Roundup: Nov. 17, 2014

An Indian woman harvests paddy in a paddy field on the outskirts of Gauhati, India, one of the world’s largest grain exporters, Thursday, Nov. 13 2014. The United States and India said Thursday they had resolved a dispute over stockpiling of food by governments, clearing a major stumbling block to a deal to boost world trade. India had insisted on its right to subsidize grains under a national policy to support hundreds of millions of impoverished farmers and provide food security amid high inflation. The U.S. and others in the World Trade Organization, meanwhile, were more focused on ensuring their food exporters weren’t disadvantaged by the possibility of surplus Indian grain flooding the world market.
