The Agri Machinery Division of DIMO and Mahindra Tractors teamed up to support the country’s national initiative to recultivate barren paddy lands across the island.

The launch of Waga Saubhagya 2020 was held in the Kegalle district. As the Official Machinery Partner of the event, DIMO supplied Mahindra Yuvo tractors for these abandoned lands.

The founder of? ‘Mr. Farmer’, Yuresh Eranga is one such aspiring farmer from the young generation who has been recultivating barren lands.

He is on course to implement organic cultivation methodology in these lands with the objective of producing and introducing organic rice to the local market under the brand name of “Mr. Farmer”.

DIMO has already collaborated with ‘Mr. Farmer’ to recultivate 12 acres of an abandoned land in Malabe by providing Mahindra Yuvo tractors to prepare the lands. As a responsible corporate, DIMO hopes to provide machinery assistance alongside technical instructions to “Mr. Farmer” and encourage them to recultivate more lands.

Vice President, International Operations (South Asia) of Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., Sanjay Jadhav said, “DIMO is Mahindra’s sole partner in Sri Lanka and we are fully committed to supporting the Waga Saubhagya initiative.

COO, Retail Cluster of DIMO, Viranga Wickramaratne said, “This inspiration from the youth has already created a certain buzz around the island and if they are provided with support, they are capable of continuing the government’s vision as one country.”
