About - FARMER
FARMER is a national development organisation established by a group of senior scientists from agriculture research institutes and different sectors of agriculture. It started its operation in the year 2002. The main objective of this organisation is to mobilise large farming community for adopting available appropriate agri-technologies and techniques that help them to sustain productivity of various agricultural and horticulture crops. With the relentless efforts of various field trails and laboratory testing of agri-inputs over 19 years, we have gained a rich experience of managing pre and post-harvest agriculture operations.
