The ‘Bahubali’ is all set to make a debut in the Indian farm sector. Bahubali is the first ever fully locally designed and developed power tiller by Greaves Cotton in India. With high power 14HP engine, it offers better ploughing performance with higher tilling depth, fuel efficiency and a rugged body for long life. The product was launched as part of Greaves Cotton’s focus on the farm sector with investments in R&D, plant and people to support the growing farm sector in India.
“As part of our strategy, we have invested in building capability – people, facility and technology. This will help us strengthen our position in the Agri sector, as we cater a wide range of products and services to the farmers to help them right from ploughing to harvesting. With the Indian economy rapidly evolving, there is a need to make efficient use of farm machinery to improve land productivity,” said Nagesh Basavanhalli, MD and CEO, Greaves Cotton Limited.
