Iffco and IIT-Delhi have teamed up to conduct research on agri-tech initiatives
Iffco’s research and development branch has struck an agreement with the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Delhi to boost research consultancy, information transfer, and collaborative initiatives.
Cooperative fertilizer Iffco and the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT-Delhi) have partnered to research agricultural technologies and promote precision farming.
Nano Biotechnology Research Centre (NBRC), an Iffco research and development organization, has struck a deal with IIT-Delhi to increase research consultancies, information transfer, and joint projects.
According to IIT-Delhi, “the relationship focuses on concentrated cooperative research through sharing laboratories of IIT Delhi and IFFCO and offering research consultancy.”
The move will widen the area of agricultural research and technology development and promote advanced nanotechnology research for future uses.
Iffco scientists and engineers will collaborate with IIT-Delhi academic research faculty and academics to identify new solutions to complex agricultural and environmental problems,” it added.
Iffco is continually looking for new technologies to use to provide value to the farmer on the ground.
We also believe in developing innovative long-term solutions to reduce the cost of agricultural and farming inputs and, as a result, enhance farmer income, which is why we were able to develop the world’s first nano urea liquid at Iffco.
“We are also devoted to sustainable agriculture and seek chances to develop innovative sustainable farming solutions to reduce pollution,” said IFFCO managing director U.S. Awasthi.
- Ramgopal Rao, director of IIT-Delhi, feels the effort will stimulate research and innovation to establish a modern agriculture system that will benefit farmers.
IIT-dean Delhi’s of corporate relations, Anurag S. Rathore, said his institute is looking forward to doing some exciting work in areas like nanotechnology and material science, chemical engineering, agriculture technologies, environmental science and technology, rural development, data science, nano-bio interface, and many others in the future.
