After marking strong presence in four previous events held at Moga, Tarn Taran, Muktsar and Bhatinda, New Holland Agriculture continued to present its range of farm mechanisation solutions at the Innovative Farmers’ Meet held at Khanna on 13th May. Mr. Lokesh Rampal from New Holland Agriculture educated the farmers present at the venue about the range of solutions offered by the company right from soil preparation to post-harvesting including products like Rake & Baler, which are revolutionizing collection of hay left in the fields after harvesting.
New Holland rakes & balers are the market leaders in India and have played a significant role in collection of biomass for biomass based power generation by paddy straw & other crop-residues and cogeneration from cane trash in sugar mills. The effort has not only resulted in providing a sustainable solution for energy generation through renewable energy sources in our power-starved country, but also contributed to a significant drop in environmental pollution levels by utilizing the surplus crop residue otherwise burnt in fields, thereby preserving the soil nutrients at the same time.
