Dhamra: To ensure the overall development and welfare of the farmer community and improve their financial condition, Adani Dhamra Port has been undertaking various initiatives through its CSR arm Adani Foundation.

To lend a helping hand to the farmers after Cyclone Yaas, Adani Foundation with the support of the State Agriculture Department and Sansar Agropol PVT limited is providing subsidised paddy seed support to them. It will also provide technical support later on.

The foundation is making available 6 mt high-yielding research-based varieties of seeds (RGL 2537 and CR 505) to the farming community. The 6 mt seeds have arrived at Karanpalli and Karanjamal GP. They will be provided to the farmers at a subsidised price through the two Farmers Clubs of Karanpalli and Karanjamal i.e. Maa Banadurga Farmers Club and Govinda Krushka Club.

The programme was inaugurated by Bairagi Charan Sethi, Block Agriculture Officer, Chnadbali and Dr Ajit Kumar Giri, Block Agriculture Officer, Bhadrak. It will benefit 350 small and marginal farmers of Karanpalli and Karanjamal.

Post the inauguration, both the BEOs discussed the issues and concerns of the farmers as well as the impact of the severe Cyclone YAAS. They also visited the fields for saline soil and water sample collection to send them for state-level testing to draw future course of interventions for the farming community in the area.
