Under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, National Fertilizers Limited (NFL), India’s leading public sector fertiliser manufacturing company, distributed 95 cotton plucking machines free of cost to the farmers in Haryana.
The cotton plucking machines were distributed on Thursday in two separate programmes in Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK), Sadalpur, Hisar and Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bhiwani.
Handing over the machines to the farmers, Virendra Nath Dutt, Chairman and Managing Director, NFL briefly explained the social responsibility programmes being undertaken by the company for the farmers and also gave a demonstration to the farmers about the use of cotton plucking machines. The demonstration helped the farmers understand the easy use of the machines.
The programme was also attended by Anil Motsara, Chief General Manager, Marketing and Dilbag Singh along with various senior officials of the company. With the use of these machines, the plucking of cotton will be done faster and more cleanly.
More than 500 such cotton plucking machines have been distributed in the country by NFL to the farmers in Punjab, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Telangana.
