Petroleum Conservation Research Association (PCRA), Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Government of India, and TAFE (Tractors and Farm Equipment Limited), the world’s third largest tractor manufacturer by volume, signed an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) in New Delhi to aid conservation of resources across the country.

The collaboration between the premier government body and TAFE, was inked by Alok Tripathi, executive director, PCRA, and T R Kesavan, president and chief operating officer, product strategy and corporate relations, TAFE.

PCRA plays an active role in proposing policies and strategies to the Government of India for petroleum conservation aimed at reducing excessive dependence of the country on oil. Under the MoU, it is planned to jointly conduct agriculture workshops and melas by involving TAFE’s extensive dealership network in spreading awareness/sensitising farmers on the advantages of better maintenance and upkeep of their tractors and implements, resulting in lesser fuel consumption and efficient utilisation of resources, thereby helping farmers maximise their productivity and profitability.

Field trials will be used to demonstrate the right usage and proven methods that impact the bottom line of the farmers, thereby increasing productivity per unit of power consumed. Precision agriculture and water conservation will mitigate over usage of critical resources.

Contributing towards energy conservation and reducing dependency, this joint CSR effort by TAFE and PCRA will help the farmers to minimise costs through conservation, recycling and use of alternate energy.

This engagement will further include joint outreach events and knowledge sharing modules for farmers curated by PCRA through TAFE’s JFarm Services app.
