Argentine farmers on strike

Grain farmers say government measures are keeping prices unreasonably low.

    Farmers in Argentina have paralysed the nation's grain sales in a seven-day strike against government export limits.

    They say the quotas in one of the world's largest grain exporters lead to artificially low prices.

    Similar protests three years ago helped push global food prices to record highs.
