Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Narendra Singh Tomar launched the 'Shashwat Bharat Krushi Rath,' a mobile knowledge centre, in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, to raise farmer awareness of globally recognised sustainable, natural, and chemical-free farming methods.

According to the statement, the plan is to move the mobile centre across the country. The 'Shashwat Bharat Krushi Rath' will travel across India's villages in the coming months, according to the company.

"The rural world is much more than agriculture, but it is agriculture that has the most impact on the rural space and whose products allow us all to live, rural and urban alike." We are confident that this initiative will be a model project that will improve social and environmental morals while also bringing economic viability to our nation's farmers. With the Sustainable Farming and Rural Entrepreneurship Centre's takeaways, we hope to benefit the greatest number of farmers in our country," said Anand Chordia, founder of TEFF.

About Mobile Agri Knowledge Centre

This mobile centre is a replica of the 'Sustainable Farming and Rural Entrepreneurship Centre' at The Eco Factory Foundation (TEFF), a Maharashtra-based non-profit organization near Pune.

According to a TEFF statement, the centre will also provide information on appropriate market connections, post-harvest technologies, and government schemes and policies concerning agriculture and related businesses/start-ups

The center's goal is to strengthen farmers' economies by educating them on sustainable agriculture practices and establishing sustainable farms.

It will demonstrate the value of sustainable farming from the ground up. It will cover topics such as the plantation calendar – what crops to grow and when to grow them, how to grow their produce with the natural resources available on their farm, market linkages – how to add value to their business in an efficient manner, how to sell their produce in the market, and other topics.
