|From One Farmer to Another|
CMD Vimal Chawda and other VNR experts hold meetings every Tuesday with farmers from surrounding areas at the company farms in Gomchi.
At these interactive sessions, farmers discuss various aspects of their work with the VNR officials. They are given tips to improve their methods and enhance their yield and are also updated by the experts on the latest technologies in farming. Various topics like irrigation, plant protection and agronomic practices of different vegetable crops are discussed.
The VNR management also guides small-scale/marginal vegetable growers around the VNR farm who approach them for advice to deal their respective problem areas. Besides, the company donates seed samples to them and various NGOs working for farmers.
|In 1974, founder Shri Narayan Chawda formed the Navin Beej Utpadak Sahakari Samiti. The society is dedicated to the welfare of fellow farmers. Its aim is to multiply production of acclimatized seeds for rice, potato and vegetables in Chhattisgarh and supply quality seeds and fertilizers and pesticides at reasonable rates to local farmers.|
|Nurturing The Future|
The VNR management recognizes the need to encourage education in order to empower young blood in agriculture and create a more informed breed of farmer-businessmen. In a step towards this purpose, VNR provides scholarships to children of farmers in Gomchi village for academic excellence.
