With the mercury soaring up every day and no relief to beat the heat, the farmers coming to the Krishi Upaj mandi (farmers’ market) in Vidisha to sell their crops, are welcomed with drinking water that is provided by New Holland Agriculture, a leading global agricultural equipment brand, through its business partner, M/s Lodhi Motors.
New Holland Agriculture, in association with M/s Lodhi Motors, which is based in Madhya Pradesh's Vidisha district, has installed a dedicated booth with water dispensers to provide much-needed refreshment to the farmers arriving at the Krishi Upaj mandi. It has a footfall of more than thousand farmers every day. It is to be placed for 15 days in the months of April, May and June.
