A new CSR initiative has been announced by Case IH, a brand of CNH Industrial, a leading global name in agriculture equipment – the Unnat Kaushal Sugarcane Harvester Operator Training. Sugar cane operators from all over India can participate in this programme which has been introduced in collaboration with Krishi Vigyan Kendra ( KVK ) in Baramati, Maharashtra. This training to sugarcane farmers by Case IH is aimed at educating them on how to improve the overall efficiency and maximize the machine uptime of harvesting equipment. This will go a long way in encouraging sustainable sugarcane farming.

The first batch comprised 150 farmers, from the villages of Satara, Sangli, Kolhapur and Baramati District. A total number of 300 operators in the age group of 18 – 35 years with minimum educational qualifications will be trained in this five-day programme. Commenting on this positive step, Sandeep Gupta, Agriculture India Sales and Development Leader, CNH Industrial mentioned that the Unnat Kaushal program could be seen as their commitment towards furthering sustainability in the agriculture industry. This programme would empower the sugarcane harvester operators with adequate skills and expertise to operate the equipment efficiently which in turn would lead to maximum productivity. This would then contribute towards minimizing costs, and achieving a sustainable farming system. The company’s aim is to include the maximum number of farmers in that region.
