Our unique way of promoting and nurturing farmer relations and evolving progressive partnerships with our other vendors and customers has helped us in multiple ways. It has helped us build a reputation for credibility, integrity, loyalty and goodwill. And together, these values have helped drive our success story…a story of excellence that spans the entire gamut of our business.
Going ahead, we plan to introduce more labor efficient processes and also set up our own research farms with the objective of conducting demonstrations and trials frequently, so as to find better varieties of sugarcane and innovation in cultivation practices for obtaining quality cane production.
Continued farmer meetings and seminars on new technology and modern practices in cane development, alongwith development of new link roads for easy transportation of sugarcane at gate and out centers, are other initiatives that we propose to undertake in the coming year.
Agriculture technology, biotechnology and manufacturing technology are some of the key focus areas of our R&D, which also encompasses soil testing at our state-of-the-art soil-testing laboratory in Dwarikesh Nagar. Modern technologies are continuously evolved and developed at our centre to boost output and improve efficiencies, to the benefit of all stakeholders.
Hybrid seeds are development at the R&D facility and then distributed to the farmers to boost cane productivity. We also have a bio-pesticides laboratory to develop pesticides for seed and crop protection. We make extensive use of remote sensing for accurate geological surveys of the command area by using satellite images for enhancement of yield and sugarcane growth.
