Accolades won by Swaraj Tractors at the ITOTY Awards 2022
SMART MACHINERY OF THE YEAR awarded to CODE BY SWARAJ
CODE is a revolutionary multi-purpose farm mechanisation solution to transform horticulture farming in India. It is conceived with the idea of eliminating the drudgery of labour involved in horticultural farming.
The narrowest and lightest ride-on machine allows farmers to carry out inter-culture operations in narrow rows for various vegetable and fruit crops.
Additionally, the shorter turning radius of this machine provides better manoeuvrability on smaller farms cultivating horticulture crops.
BEST TRACTOR BETWEEN 30 TO 40HP awarded to SWARAJ 735 FE
Swaraj 735 FE is the most preferred tractor in the farming community because of its long life, low maintenance costs, and ergonomic design. It comes with a very powerful engine and is suitable for both agriculture and allied operations.
BEST CSR INITIATIVE awarded to Project Pani
Swaraj’s CSR team undertook Project Pani to deal with the problem of groundwater depletion in Punjab as well as Rajasthan. This project is largely focused on the conservation of water through the renovation of the 18 traditional water ponds over four years in the needy villages of Punjab and Rajasthan.
This initiative would save around 40 lakh cubic metres of water every year, enough to support the irrigation and drinking water needs of more than 20 villages. In another such initiative, roof rainwater harvesting tanks have been constructed in 44 government schools in Rajasthan and Punjab.
About 40 lakh litres of water will be conserved through this project annually. Under this project, clean drinking water will be provided to more than 10,000 students in rural Rajasthan, where there is a high concentration of fluoride in existing groundwater.
