Fields days in Gujarat
Grand field days were organized by Mr. Mukesh patel – Regional Manager in Gujrat and demonstrated the benefits for farmers, if they opt for NS 801 and NS 810 okra hybrids.
Ramesh Bhai Patel and Tulsinghbhai Chaudary, were very happy farmers, who have trialed these hybrids and certified that major advantages with these hybrids are tolerant to Yellow Vein Mosaic virus. In the same field there were checks/market leaders, where more than 50% of plants were infected with the virus. The farmers also mentioned that the plants were heavy yielders and the fruits fetched better prices in the wholesale market.
More than 100 farmers visited the field days and have seen the hybrid and appreciated the benefits the hybrids offer.
