Camson Bio Technologies Ltd., India's IPR-driven agri biotechnology company, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Vazhakkulam Pineapple Growers and Processors Pvt. Ltd. (VPGP) in Kerala.

The MoU will help every farmer associated with the organisation to go organic, eco-friendly, improve land conditions, boost yields and reduce the cost of cultivation with utilization of "zero residue technology" produced by Camson.

The MoU was signed by Joy Mathew, Managing Director of VGGP and Sundaresh Krishnamoorthy - Country Head Institutional Business, marks the beginning of a new era in the pineapple farming industry and will lead other pineapple growers to follow suit

"Camson paves the way for 'creating a healthy society' by providing 'zero residue' solutions to the growers not only in India but across the world," said Krishnamoorthy.

The organisation felt the need to protect and enhance the soil health and decided to encourage the usage of advance "zero residue" technology for pineapple farming.

Baby John, Executive Director, VPGP, said, "This is all set to redefine growing practices in the pineapple industry. Also, the farmers can expect a better realisation in national as well as international markets."

The move materialised after VPGP performed a thorough test and field trials of Camson's products, which are based on microbial extract. Camson is the only company with a range of products which are proved to be effective, economical and provide zero residue products.

VPGP is one of the most trusted farmer associations that reaches out to over 500 large pineapple growers that cultivate the fruit over 30,000 hectares across Kerala.
