Promoting sustainability across the potato value chain, food processing company Iscon Balaji Foods (IBF) is promoting sustainable farming across its farms in India. 

Engaged in corporate farming since a decade now, the company has been encouraging its 8,000-odd farmer partners across seven states to adopt regenerative agricultural practices across 25,000 acre farms where it grows potatoes. 

IBF is a leading manufacturer of French Fries, dehydrated potato flakes and ready-to-cook potato specialties, and through strategic intervention, has ensured its potatoes come from sustainable farms.

While IBF bio-technologists provide early generation seeds with higher vigour and low virus load to farmers, its highly qualified team of agronomists handhold farmers throughout cultivation to harvesting. 
 

IBF ensures its farmlands follow regenerative agricultural practices with livestock to improve humus content of soil.

IBF incentivises green manuring through crops like peanut, sunhemp, dhaincha and cowpea that increase the organic content of the soil through nitrogen fixing. 

IBF agronomists guide partner farmers to undertake crop rotation with crops like watermelon and maize between crop cycles, to maintain soil health, thereby ensuring bio-diversity in and around the farms. 

Promoting water conservation through drip and sprinkler irrigation, IBF farms save 40-60% water. Sustainability is a journey, and IBF is already on that path.
