The Punjab Agricultural University has entered into agreement with Kartar Agro Industries (P) Ltd, Patiala for the commercialization of the PAU Super SMS Technology. Dr Navtej Singh Bains, Director of Research, PAU and Shri Nirmal Singh of Kartar Agro Industries signed the MoA on behalf of their respective organizations, in the presence of the Vice Chancellor, Dr B.S. Dhillon. Dr Bains revealed that a subsidy of Rs. 50,000 was being given per attachment to the farmers for installation of Super SMS with their combine harvesters. Dr Ashok Kumar, Director Extension Education, was also present at the occasion.

Dr Manjeet Singh, Head, Department of Farm Machinery and Power Engineering informed that the “PAU Super SMS” is a unique attachment for combine harvesters which cuts, chops and uniformly spreads loose straw coming out of the harvester during harvesting of paddy. The machine will facilitate the operations of other in situ straw management machinery like happy seeder, spatial no till drill mould board plough etc, which will ultimately stop the burning of paddy straw and help farmers enhance soil productivity with in situ paddy straw management.

It may be mentioned that till date 29 organizations/ firms have taken the license of PAU Super SMS Technology till date.
