KEY PROGRAMMES AND INITIATIVES
Free soil tests are conducted to determine the fertility of the soil, and this helps eliminate the uncertainty associated with any fertilizer requirements or problems the farmers may have.
Labs have been set up to conduct necessary tests. It also helps farmers struggling with plant pests and diseases. Diagnoses and management advice for any problem and any crop are then found and dealt with.

Supporting Underprivileged Children
SAEL supports the work carried out by Samarpan Sanstha dedicated to the upliftment of differently-abled children. Established in 2003, Samarpan Sansthan’s mission is to empower deprived children and women in India. The NGO has done remarkable work in improving the lives of those from economically and socially backward strata of society.
