NEW DELHI: Petroleum Conservation Research Association (PCRA and TAFE – Tractors and Farm Equipment Limited, signed MoU to aid conservation of resources across the country.
Under the MoU, they have planned to jointly conduct Agriculture Workshops and Melas by involving TAFE’s extensive dealership network in spreading awareness/ sensitizing farmers on the advantages of better maintenance and upkeep of their tractors and implements, resulting in lesser fuel consumption and efficient utilization of resources, thereby helping farmers maximize their productivity and profitability.
Field trials will be used to demonstrate the right usage and proven methods that impact the bottom line of the farmers, thereby increasing productivity per unit of power consumed. Precision agriculture and water conservation will mitigate over usage of critical resources. Contributing towards energy conservation and reducing dependency, this joint CSR effort by TAFE and PCRA will help the farmers to minimize costs through conservation, recycling and use of alternate energy.
This engagement will further include joint outreach events and knowledge sharing modules for farmers curated by PCRA through TAFE’s ‘JFarm Services’ App.
