ALOR SETAR: The Kedah state government will fight against any ‘cartel’ found in the rice industry in the state to ensure better yields as well as to protect the interests of farmers, says Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor.

The Mentri Besar said it was possible that such a cartel existed when the rice cultivation undertaken by the Kedah State Zakat Board (LZNK) was able to achieve a higher yield than the existing average in the state.
