Lab to land programme
This programme was started by Tata Tea in 1990, with technical assistance from the Assam Agriculture University, to help the farmers residing in areas adjacent to the tea estate. High yielding cash crops and winter vegetables as well as poultry are given to them, so that the sale of these can help them supplement their income.
Amalgamated Plantations Pvt. Ltd. is the largest organised player of fishery in the North-East, producing the best quality fish. These are supplied to the local fishing communities to ensure higher yield for generating sustainable income.
Amalgamated Plantations Pvt. Ltd. has a large inventory of trees comprising more than ten indigenous varieties. A programme for planting 20,000 trees per annum across all its gardens has been implemented.
Amalgamated Plantations Pvt. Ltd. believes that organic methods of farming results in a far more inclusive and enriched lifestyle. Apart from our hugely successful experiment in Hathikuli, we intend to highlight and focus on organic projects that help preserve the delicate ecological balance in the North-Eastern Frontier region.
