Engine of Growth
As of May 2020, the most used word of the year is “corona”. The whole world has severely been hit by the pandemic. To say that the times are volatile, chaotic, and ambiguous is an understatement. What began as a health crisis has now crumbled economies and led to an economic crisis. In these trying times, as suggested by our hon’ble Prime Minister Mr. Modiji himself, what our country needs is to be self-reliant “AtmaNirbhar Bharat” and encourage the consumption of local, indigenous products to pave the way for survival and subsequent revival. Greaves has been touching millions of lives with a strong and widespread presence for the past 160 years in the core sectors of the economy:
Farming: The agriculture sector constitutes 18% of the country’s GDP and employs 50% of the country’s workforce. Greaves promotes its growth by providing affordable, low-maintenance, made-in-India tools, and equipment for all stages of the crop cycle from land preparation to harvesting.
