Farmer Training and Collection Centre (FTCC)

Our Farmer Training and Collection Centre (FTCC) is part of the program which provides training and guidance to local farmers by educating them on:

  • Soil Testing
  • Plant protection against adverse conditions
  • Combating susceptibility to diseases
  • Integrated Nutrient Management
  • Integrated Pest Management
  • Post-harvest Management
  • Farm management practices – pruning, tree density, etc.
  • Irrigation System and water management
  • Quality standards

We empower farmers with technical expertise to help facilitate best farm management practices. This enables the farmer to improve their fruit yield. Our relationship with them extends beyond transactional; we integrate them in the business as our co- beneficiaries.

Our direct connect with the farmers is an enabler for some of them to be able to minimize involvement of the middlemen in the entire supply chain. With our technical expertise, innovation and dedication, we aim to set new benchmarks of excellence in the field of citrus fruit cultivation.
