Design & Development

The sowing season starts well before the roads open towards Kashmir and Manali. Hence we were left with only two  options. Go for hand broadcasting of seeds or design our own seed drill. We adopted both the options. We designed our own seed cum fertilizer drill and supplemented it with hand broadcasting of seeds.

Also, with courtesy from the army and the Indian Air force, who airlifted two high pressure pump-sets for us, we designed our own hydro-seeding equipment and traveler irrigation system in Ladakh. Both the equipments are still being used to supplement our irrigation needs.
