Message from the Director
The agriculture farm mechanization refers to the development and use of machines that can take the place of human and animal power in agricultural processes. The mechanization of agriculture that took place during the 21th century led to major changes in how farmers plant, irrigate and harvest crops. The type of equipment combine harvester, tractor, power tiller and other allied agriculture machines, enables farmers to increase their agriculture production instead of less depending upon labour and animal requirement in rural areas.
The North Eastern Region Training & Testing Institute, Bishwanath Chariali,Dt.Bishwanath(ASSAM) has been setup by – Government of India, Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Department of Agriculture & Farmer Welfare, New Delhi in the year of 1990. The Institute conducting various type of training program by way of theory ,practical, utilization, operation & maintenance, auto electrical and dimensional measurement of engine components. However, consequently the farm mechanization has reached to number of rural farmers in India to overcome the requirement of human labour which are not usually available due to urbanization. The testing of diesel engine, different type intra-culture equipment is tested by way of modern Instrumentation process as per the guidelines of ` Bureau of Indian Standards ` reaffirmed time to time.
The testing of agriculture equipment improves to catering the Industry, manufacturing appropriate farm machinery which direct benefits the farmers and their social development. In addition to this information technology has played vital role to approach the governance – farmer directly in 21 century. The new solar energy system based technology has become an alternative source of energy to the farmer getting better results of their crop.
The field demonstrations of agriculture equipment in the former`s field is provided under the schemes of government of India time to time in the North Eastern region of India. The Institute has achieved the targets of training & testing and with the coherent devotion of staff.
Although the advantages of owning agriculture farm mechanization is clear, many of the smaller farming operations can find it difficult to keep up with the high cost of advancing agricultural technology. The new technological developments in farm equipment point to future innovations, which may include GPS-directed farm machines, computer monitoring systems and sensory devices to allocate seed, fuel, and fertilizer more precisely and efficiently.
The Institute is in process to get equip with national knowledge network (NKN) catering information to formers of NE region directly through internet communication face to face via 3G;4G technology.
Healthy Earth, Green Farm....
