Mahindra Tractors launches Yuvraj 215 for small farm operators
Mahindra & Mahindra, leading auto and farm equipment manufacturers in the country have launched a 15 HP tractor called Yuvraj 215. Launched in Pune at a price of INR 1,81,000, the tractor is ideally suited for small farmers and has a haulage capacity of 1.5 tonnes.
It will be highly suited for farmers in the hilly states of Maharashtra and Gujarat who want to upgrade from bullocks or power tillers for specific purposes such as inter culture, power generation or water pumping while it also offers optimum benefits for cultivation of vegetables, raising cash crops or tending orchards.
This highly fuel efficient tractor is suited for those areas where larger tractors will find it difficult to navigate through and will be apt for smaller farmers with lesser landholdings. Tests are also being conducted on the hilly slopes of Shimla and Solan where the new Yuvraj 215 can be used for fruit cultivation while it will also serve as transportation vehicles to get the produce to the markets both efficiently and economically.
