    A Ladakhi woman carries wheat plants over her shoulders in Stok, 20km (13 miles) north of the Leh district of Ladakh in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, in this September 8, 2005 file photo. India, under pressure to cool inflation running near two-year highs, banned new wheat and rice futures contracts in its fledgling exchanges in February in a bid to check speculation and -- hopefully -- tame prices. But while farmers are unfamiliar with electronically-traded futures, the ban could be bad news for them because there could be less price transparency and fewer private buyers.
