29 December 2021, Hyderabad: Dhanuka Agritech group chairman Mr R.G Agarwal was in Hyderabad to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Professor Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University, Hyderabad. The two institutions will work jointly to provide technical know-how and support to farmers at large.
“Quality inputs and use of modern technology like drones for crop protection are crucial for substantially increasing the export of agricultural produce from Telangana. The state should be a role model for others to follow”, said Mr Agarwal.
He urged the farmers of the state to take the help of drones, robotics, artificial intelligence (AI) and use the best quality seeds, fertilizers, and pesticides to increase the yield, improve crop quality to increase their income.
Speaking on the potential of Telangana, Mr. Agarwal said that Telangana has the right potential to emerge as a major center for the export of farm produce and it is the need of the hour to sensitise the farmers about the long term benefits of using the latest technology and quality inputs.
Dhanuka Group has been at the forefront in promoting the latest technology to help farmers increase yield. The company has the latest technological Crop Protection products (Herbicides, Insecticides, Fungicides, and Plant Growth Regulators) and has technical tie-ups with 2 American, 3 European, and 6 Japanese firms.
He emphasized that the use of right and good inputs will also help farmers increase their export share and help realize the cherished dream of doubling the income of farmers. “There is a vast market for quality Indian agricultural products in overseas markets. The keyword is ‘Quality’. The farmers must use quality inputs, and take the help of modern technology to increase per hectare yield. This will help them increase the exports and hence income,” Agarwal said.
Dhanuka Group will participate and sponsor conferences and together with the university will jointly conduct research activities in the field of crop protection chemicals. In partnership with the University, Dhanuka will encourage farmers to use modern agriculture technologies, which will play a vital role in increasing crop production.
