KRBL for Farmers
KRBL conducts monthly workshops for farmers, informing them about state-of-the-art farming techniques, higher-yielding seeds, better farming machinery, and equipment, etc. We also advise on better equipment, fertilizers, seeds, pesticides and also provide best practices to the farmers, so that they can modernize their cultivation practices and related activities. As part of its contract farming initiatives in Punjab, Uttarakhand, and Uttar Pradesh, the Company supplies farmers with better quality, higher-yielding seeds, which its scientists develop through constant R&D efforts. This enables the farmers to procure better crops and higher realization, in turn helping the Company get better quality paddy from farmers.
This leads to significant growth in the income of farmers, year-on-year, thereby facilitating the enhancement of their living standards. It also provides the farmers with access to modern technologies and machines to further improve their crop volume and value. The impact of these initiatives, which the Company invests in on a regular basis, is visible in the improved lifestyles of the farming communities within which it operates.
The collaborative, partnership approach has been the cornerstone of the Company’s CSR focus in recent years, emerging as a strong pillar of mutual growth for both, the farming community and the Company. The Company today has strong, sustainable relations with more than 85,000 farmers, and is continuously adding to the number.
