    An Indian farmer drinks water while harvesting in a wheat field on the outskirts of the northern Indian city of Chandigarh in this April 15, 2006 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.
