Avana’s stall at Kisan Fair 2019 will present Avana Jalasanchay Super, a sky blue coloured lined artificial farm pond solution, which can be used to create advanced ponds that have 50% lower evaporation rates and are suitable for fish farming.
Mr. Makrand Appalwar, Chairman & MD, Emmbi Industries Ltd., said, “Avana creates comprehensive water conservation solutions, which are used to uplift farmers from poverty and starvation in the rain scarce areas of Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh. Avana Jalasanchay Super uses our patented Habitech Technology that reduces evaporation by 50% and increases algal presence in the pond water, which ultimately helps fish grow. We are striving to create over 2,500 Jalasanchay Super farm ponds by FY2021.”
Under its brand Jalasanchay, the Company manufacturers the world’s widest pond geo-membrane at 13.5 feet, which minimizes leakages and subsequent water wastage. Jalasanchay Super will provide an additional source of revenue for farmers, and thus further implement our vision of making every Indian farmer prosperous.
Ms. Maithili Appalwar, CEO, Avana, said, “At Kisan, we are not just launching a new product, but we’re also creating a first-of-its-kind retail experience for farmers. We have multiple stall activities, which will celebrate our farmers and their intent to save water with Avana. There are also several incentives and spot prizes for early bird entries as we want to encourage commitment amongst farmers in Nagpur, Nashik, Ahmednagar, Aurangabad, Kolhapur and many other districts to save water.”
