Hi-Tech Pipes launches awareness campaign on organic farming
New Delhi : Tasked with supporting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of “Zero Budget Farming”, Hi-Tech Pipes will be working with various stakeholders to create awareness about ill-effects of using chemical fertilizers and chemicals in major cities of the country and its long term solution through promoting Organic Farming in Poly Houses.

Hi-Tech Pipes has been organising several awareness campaigns which are in sync with the government's vision to make the life of farmers easier without causing much damage to the ecosystem.
The latest campaign was launched by the company during its regional customer meet held at Pune. There was an overwhelming response in the meeting which was attended by around 150 leading Distributors, Dealers, Retailers & Fabricators from Pune, Nasik, Mumbai, Nagpur and surrounding stations.
Commenting on the Customer Meet, Mr Anish Bansal, Director, Hitech Pipes Ltd. said, “The 'zero budget farming' is one of the methods of organic farming which consumes less water while adhering to better agronomic practices that eliminates the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers, reducing cost. Further our farmers should make the best use of Government subsidy schemes for Polyhouse Farming which increases their productivity multifold, and allows them options to do a variety of farming around the year.
