Jindal Stainless – Training and Awareness Camp for Crops
Jindal Stainless – Gram Unnati, one of India’s top integrated agri-tech solution providers, held a training camp in Nuh, Haryana for close to 150 farmers who were getting ready to plant tomatoes as well as a variety of Rabi vegetable crops like bottle gourd, ridge gourd, sponge gourd, bitter gourd, brinjal, cucurbits, etc.
The training camp was held in Nuh district, a key area for tomato production in the nation, with the assistance of Jindal Stainless Limited (JSL). The sale of tomatoes and other vegetables is one of the main sources of income for farmers in this area, and they invest a lot of time, money, and effort into producing the highest-quality produce in order to increase their profits.
With a focus on managing pests and diseases, Gram Unnati’s awareness programmes covered a wide range of issues, including choosing seeds that are scientifically advised for the region, nursery management, soil preparation, transplantation, etc. Six training sessions were held in different Nuh villages. Farmers enthusiastically took part in these activities, and they were happy with the results. Farmers additionally received superior, high-yield tomato seed varieties created by the Indian Institute of Horticulture Research (IIHR).
Aneesh Jain, CEO and Founder of Gram Unnati, commented on the training session, saying, “It’s crucial to have access to the appropriate information at the right time because managing pests and illnesses in this crop along with other crops may be very difficult. Gram Unnati’s training sessions were intended to increase knowledge of the ideal pre- and post-sowing procedures. Throughout the Rabi season, we will conduct more of these workshops in various regions of the nation.
The training programme also provided farmers with the most recent methods for protecting their crops from various pests and diseases. An emphasis was placed on integrated pest and nutrient control. These tactics must be tried to be used by farmers in their fields because sustainable agriculture depends on them.
