A mega farmer gathering was organized at Govt Seed Farm, Chillianwala by Agricultural Engineering Institute (AEI) with collaboration of Adaptive Research Farm, Gujranwala.
AEI, PARC successfully demonstrated a newly developed Combine Seeder or Super Seeder machine with collaboration of Greenland Engineers, Daska.
A large number of farmers, Agricultural Extension Officers participated in the event. The Seeder can plant wheat crop directly in combine-harvested rice stubbles and residue in a single operation by incorporating it in the soil.
Using this technology, the farmer will not need to burn their crop residue in the field, which is a big threat for environment and causes SMOG and road accidents.
