About Project Groundnut
The Government of India (GoI) aspires to double the income of farmers by 2023. This includes the plans to enhance their food and nutritional security through Good Agricultural Practices (GAP).
We launched Project Groundnut in collaboration with the Government of Gujarat to improve the quality of groundnut production. The project aimed at boosting groundnut productivity using modern technology, equipment, and farmer training.
The initiative addressed groundnut harvesting issues like adverse climatic conditions, pest attacks and lack of technological support. Our goal was to improve the conditions of areas such as Rajkot, Dwarka, Jamnagar and Amreli, which were most affected by these problems.
With an objective to improve farmers’ income by harvesting groundnut efficiently, the project ensured that the farmers received adequate support to profit from the groundnut output, production, and sales. Services for managing toxic pests like white grub were also extended.
Project Groundnut has been declared one of the best by the Government of India this year.Through Project Groundnut, we strive to equip farmers with crop protection, weather forecasting, farm mechanization and a wide range of services.
Our services will transform the way groundnut is produced and boost farmer revenue. We aim to tackle all groundnut irrigation problems with unique solutions.
