Seed Distribution
Visits different areas and meet farmers to discuss plans for upcoming crop. Distributes carefully selected healthy and pure seeds amongst farmers free of cost. Literature in local language is also distributed amongst farmers giving them specific instructions on issues like use of fertilizers & pest-control.

Paddy Selection
Inspection by a team of experienced selectors and paddy-experts. Tests for moisture contents Samples are processed


The selected Basmati paddy is then allowed to slowly reduce its moisture by natural-sun-drying-method, to achieve optimum moisture content for husking.


Stocks of brown basmati rice are stored in wellventilated and spacious warehouses During the period stocks remain in warehouses, these are subjected to regular inspection and fumigation from time-to-time


This is a multi-step process where foreign material like straws, mud balls, threads, stones, paddy and metal particles are removed from the rice.

Whitening and Polishing

In whitening machines in several passes to ensure efficient removal of bran. Number of passes depends upon the degree of whiteness required. Rice is allowed to pass through mist polishers which impart an extremely clean and glossy white appearance to the kernels


Through this process broken rice is separated from head rice to a very high percentage of accuracy

Color sorting

The final step in rice processing is color sorting. This is aimed at to remove discolored grains from processed rice to give the final product a uniform-color look.

Most modern electronic bagging scales are used to ensure high degree of accuracy in weighing. i) Cardboard / Paper-sack ii) Polypropylene iii) Cotton iv) Jute
