The training camp was organized with the help of Jindal Stainless Limited (JSL) in the Nuh district, which is known for its tomato production. Farmers in this region rely heavily on the sale of tomatoes and other vegetables as one of their primary sources of income, and they invest a significant amount of time, money, and effort to produce the highest quality possible to maximize their profits.

Gram Unnati's awareness sessions covered a wide range of topics, including the selection of scientifically recommended seeds for the area, nursery management, soil preparation, transplantation, and so on, with a focus on pest and disease management. Six training sessions were held in Nuh's various villages. Farmers actively participated in these events and were pleased with the results. Farmers were also given high-quality, high-yield tomato seed variants developed by the Indian Institute of Horticulture Research (IIHR).

Aneesh Jain, CEO, and Founder of Gram Unnati while addressing the farmers at the event said “It's important to have access to the right advice at the right time because managing pests and diseases in this crop along with other vegetables can be very challenging. The purpose of Gram Unnati's training sessions was to raise awareness of the best pre-and post-sowing practices. We would be carrying out more of such sessions in other parts of the country all through the Rabi season.”

Farmers who attended the event were very happy with the knowledge they gained throughout the event.

“As we begin growing tomatoes, it will be very beneficial for us to be aware of various pests and diseases, particularly the distinction between harmful and beneficial insects, as well as to receive overall guidance from the Gram Unnati team, as this will assist us in raising healthier crops”, said a farmer at the event.
