Today’s biggest challenge faced by Indian agriculture is increasing productivity while maintaining soil quality. The agriculture sustainability is threatened by declining soil quality, receding ground water table and inadequate and imbalanced use of fertilizers. Working towards the cause of farmers, NFL has conducted free soil testing to analyses major and micro nutrients in many villages of Punjab, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh. In addition, the company is relentlessly working to spread awareness amongst farmers about balanced use of fertilizers through talk, putting up demonstration farms and distribution of literature. To educate farmers, Village soil maps have also been prepared by NFL and handed over to panchayats.
Under company’s flagship CSR programme, 10 villages, 5 each in Haryana and M.P have been adopted to demonstrate and encourage the use of city compost which is an organic fertilizer. In this project, free compost was supplied to farmers, block demonstration farms have been put up and farmer education programmes were conducted to spread awareness about city compost. Feedbacks have been received that use of city compost has enhanced farm productivity and response of farmers have been encouraging towards use of compost.
In addition to above, company has been continuously working for rural electrification through non-conventional energy source for last several years. Company has installed over 200 solar lights and distributed over 100 solar lanterns in the remote villages of Uttarakhand. These villages have not been provided with any lighting facility due to their topography and issues related to proximity. Lighted home not shoved away darkness from homes, but also brought hopes for a brighter future. This project extended the working hours for residents and also made the streets safer. Similar project have been undertaken in villages in Bathinda, Panipat and Guna.
