Farmers in the village Patapur of Sukinda Block of Odisha were tackling with a pest attack on their Brinjal plant. Worried by the problem, they reached out to Jindal Stainless Foundation, which has been working with the Gram Unnati Foundation to upskill and educate farmers.
The team consulted experts and organized an on-farm training session in collaboration with Odisha Livelihood Mission. Required pesticides (Trichoderma viridae and Pseudomonas fluorescens) were made available to the farmers through United Phosphorous Limited, the makers of crop protection products. The timely intervention led to the reduction of pest infestation and cost of cultivation, and improved the overall productivity.
