To reduce input costs to farmers on urea usage and protect the environment, TANA has donated 10 handheld Green Seeker units to Acharya NG Ranga Agriculture University (ANGRAU) as part of collaborative project to develop standards for our crop varieties. Once the standards are developed, Greenseker units will be taken to village/Mandal level in the next phase.
