Ask us more about the Kisaan Khushaal Program that positively impacts our rice farmers.
At Shafi Gluco Chem, we believe our farmers are an integral part of our supply chain. We believe in their training and development, which includes guidelines for sustainable agriculture. This is part of our Kisaan Khushaal (Farmer Prosperity) Program that focuses on the training and development of our farmers and their families.
The activities that we encourage our farmers to partake in includes sustainable farming as well as consideration of social responsibilities such as working and living conditions of farmers, the needs of rural communities, and consumer health and safety both in the present and the future. Some of these activities include:
• Training sessions to improve existing farming techniques
Our training sessions also help farmers to achieve the perfect balance of hereditary and modern farming practices to maximize crop yield and profitability while conserving natural resources.
• Shifting Towards Organic
Given the advantages of organic farming when it comes to quality crops, Shafi Gluco Chem highly encourages and trains our farmers to cultivate organic rice.
• Application of organic fertilizer
The application of organic fertilizer is an integral part of the cultivation process. With the help of our expert on-field trainers, we frequently organize training sessions that focus on helping farmers learn the right application techniques and quantity with the right frequency to achieve maximum yield.
• Providing access to organic fertilizer
We make it easy for farmers to procure fertilizer by lining up organic fertilizer suppliers that adhere to strict quality control standards.
• Helping farmers make their own fertilizer
Our training sessions also help farmers make their own fertilizer using a fish or manure base. Apart from helping farmers feel genuinely accomplished, this provides them an opportunity to utilize their resources to their maximum potential.
• Using renewable resources to generate power
In an effort to conserve resources and provide uninterrupted power to local villages, solar panels were installed for each house.
• Provision of clean water
To help provide clean, drinkable water, filtration plants have been installed in the local villages.
• Promoting education
We strongly believe that education paves the way forward. In order to motivate children to work even harder in school, bags and stationary supplies were distributed among children in an effort to increase their morale.
