Indian farmers sow discontent in Georgia

Purchase of fertile land by foreigners in former Soviet republic sparks resentment.

    As authorities in Georgia have made it easier for foreigners to buy land in the country, thousands of Indian farmers have purchased fertile land in the country.

    With the nation's agricultural economy already in decline, the farmers, attracted by the availability of competitively priced land, are not always welcome by locals not used to immigrants.

    Al Jazeera's Emma Hayward reports from Kaheti, where more than 300 Indian companies have purchased land.
