The castor crop is grown extensively in the Gujarat and surrounding region of western India for several decades. The crop grows well in marginal, sandy soil and is drought resistant.
The farmers consider castor to be easy to grow and easy to sell, and they appreciate its long shelf life which enables easy storage and transportation.
Selling castor seed is straightforward and transparent in the many hundreds of open trading yards in the region.
The huge number of smallholder farmers have a long legacy of growing castor crops and they do so by choice – they consider the crop to be somewhat of an “insurance policy”
due to its robust resistance to drought and its “low input, easy to grow, easy to store, easy to sell” legacy.
There is little waste associated with castor cultivation and processing. Once crushed, the seed yields a little less than fifty percent oil, the remaining “cake” or “meal” being valued as a
highly effective organic fertilizer1. The cake may also be used internally in the crushing operation as a high calorific value carbon neutral bio fuel.
We being proud member, take the crucial first step towards a sustainable approach by wholeheartedly adopting social, economic, and environmental objectives.By actively supporting various initiatives, We are committed promoting social welfare, uplifting the livelihoods of workers and farmers, and contributing to the betterment of our planet.
This conscious decision to align our actions with sustainable principles reflects our dedication to make a positive impact on the world and fostering a brighter future for all.
