Krishi Jagran today (29th October 2021) launched a new website tractornews.in and hosted a Webinar on Farm Mechanization. The main purpose of this platform is to provide the farmers a digital window with detailed information and news on Agriculture Machinery/Equipment of various brands across the country.

Interested People can attend the live launch on Krishi Jagran’s FB Page.

Many eminent personalities from the industry including Bhavya Sehgal, Managing Director of Asia-Pacific & Japan (APJ) and General Manager - China for MTD Products participated in the launch program.

Bhavya Sehgal stated, “I strongly feel it is not about using one or two tools to increase productivity but it is about changing mindsets of people and it should become a lifestyle of every individual. Youngsters should be encouraged to be a part of agriculture. People should figure out the cost-benefit analysis as India is on a path of sustainability.

He added, “Farm Mechanization should not only focus on agriculture-related issues but it should also focus on Global portfolio.”

 “We should shift to machines which are electric and battery-driven. Farmers should be aware of the agricultural technologies so that they can quickly switch to battery-driven technologies for sustainable agriculture.

Sustainability should be at the front end. Every individual should be sensitive towards nature and agriculture and should focus on sustainable development.” He concludes.
