DHANUKA INNOVATIVE AGRICULTURE AWARDS (DIAA)
Dhanuka Agritech Limited, since its foundation, had been a forerunner in serving the farming community by advocating a holistic concept of ‘Dhanuka Kheti Ki Nai Takneek’ so as to sustainably enhance the crop productivity and farmers’ income. It has become all the more relevant today as the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has made a herculean call for ‘Doubling the Farmers’ Income by 2022’.
In order to incentives and encourage innovative and progressive farmers and related organizations and institutions to meet the productivity, income and sustainability goals Dhanuka Group has now instituted “Dhanuka Innovative Agriculture Awards” (DIAA) in various Crop segments, Save Water Initiative & Rain Water Harvesting Award to Farmer and NGOs/SHGs/Panchayats, and Farmer of the Year Award. Further, ONE Award is for an Institution for ‘Developing Innovative Agriculture Technology’ and another one is for extension services provider (Agri – Inputs dealers & distributors). These awards will recognise the outstanding efforts of Farmers/Research Institution /SAUs/ CAUs/ KVKs by way of a cash prize.
DIAA invites applications from progressive farmers / Research Institutions / SAUs /CAUs / KVKs / NGOs / SHGs / Agri – Input Dealers & Distributors / Panchayats etc. across the country who, through their farming practices / Innovation, are helping to regenerate India’s agricultural landscapes, communities and food systems which will contribute to Food Security and Doubling the Farmers’ Income at large.
It is expected that the Award Winners will be Leaders and serve the farming community as a model for rational management of resources, including land, labour, capital, water, soil nutrient, knowledge and new technology. The Awardees will be the spark-plugs for motivation and legitimization for extended reach.
