Under Phase II of the Prerna project supported by Mahindra & Mahindra, more than 100 champion women farmers from 10 villages of Sehore district of Madhya Pradesh, were trained in tractor driving at Amajhir village on February 26, 2022, thereby demonstrating that women are nowhere behind men. Apart from taking up various modern farming technologies to improve their agricultural productivity, these champion women have also shown their confidence and enthusiasm to demonstrate women power by driving heavy farm machinery vehicles. These enthusiastic women were hailed by Shri. Karan Singh Verma, MLA and former Revenue Minister, Government of Madhya Pradesh, who shared the heroic deeds of Ahilyabai Holkar and called upon these women to create a band of empowered champion farmers among future generations too and to focus on bumper agricultural yield through adoption of modern cropping practices and improved seeds.
