Agriculture And Animal Husbandry – Corporate Social Responsibility – Sterlite Copper

On the Agriculture front, Sterlite has cleaned the irrigation channel in North Main Channel, Maruthur Melakal Channel and Peikulam Channel ensuring free flow of water in 50,000 acres of agricultural land, benefitting more than 1 Lakh farmers. Further, it has initiated a drinking water project in the neighboring TV Puram Village and also constructed an underground water sump at Millavittan to mitigate the water scarcity in the village.


Kitchen GardeningMaternal mortality and health are propagated by providing vegetable seedlings to villagers. Kitchen Garden in the backyard of the every household is promoted in villages with the objectives to ensure the nutritional security of the household, give direct access to nutritionally rich food and reduce malnutrition. Vegetable seed kits containing six types of hybrid seeds were distributed to 6000 families covering 20 villages.

Cattle CampLivestock is one of the primary occupations of farmers next to agriculture. In the sphere of agriculture and animal husbandry every year we have been conducting annual livestock camp in villages ensuring dual benefits like deworming and enhancing the farmer”s income in coordination with Department of Animal Husbandry, Ottapidaram. This year 296 livestock were benefitted out of this camp.
