Farm and Veterinary Service Center (FVSC) of Azatan community has been functioning in Shirak marz since 2012. The center, specialized in artificial insemination and equipped with up-to-date tools for veterinary services, extends the scope of its operation, offering agricultural machinery services for the farms of Azatan and adjacent communities.
On October 14 a leasing agreement was signed between the FVSC director, Mr. Vardan Papoyan and CARD Agrocredit UCO CJSC on the acquisition of a John Deer tractor and a rotary tiller. The implementation of the new service type will enable the modernization of the machine-tractor fleet, saving a lot of time and increasing the efficiency of the implemented activities.
Card Foundation also organized a demonstration of the USA John Deer, Indian “Shaktiman” and “FieldKing” company equipment, providing the farmers with an opportunity to see the performance and the benefits of the machines.
As noted by the CARD representative, “As a result of studies of the European and Indian markets, comparisons and assessment of the quality and price, we realized, that by purchasing the Shaktiman company production we get European quality for a rather affordable price”.
