Mechanization and Technology

What to Do?

  • Procure appropriate machinery/ equipment as per land holding size and crop
  • Machinery & equipment can be used by Custom Hiring/sharing by groups of farmers
  • Conserve Resources - Use Zero-till Seed Drill, Laser Leveler,Happy Seed Drill Rotavator, etc.
  • Training is provided on proper use of Farm Machinery and its routine maintenance and servicing through Farm
  • Machinery Training &Testing Institutes (FMTTIs), KVKs & State Agricultural Universities.
