Farmers in need of a tractor or any related equipment can call Trringo, or place their order via its app.
Anand Mahindra, the Chairman and Managing Director of auto major Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M), retweeted a tweet that said, “That's #Uberization of farm equipments. By who else but @MahindraRise.” The tweet referred to an ad by Trringo, a tractor and farm equipment rental business, owned by M&M. Trringo, which allows farmers to hire farm equipment as per their needs, said in its ad: “Ab Har Kisan Kiraye Ka Tractor Aur Implement Mangwayega, Haq se (Now every farmer will order a tractor and other equipment as his/her right); Now farmers can call on 1800 266 266 8 and book a tractor and implement.”
Trringo aims to raise the level of mechanisation in Indian farming, states its website. Farmers in need of a tractor or any farm-related equipment can call Trringo, or use its mobile app, to place their order. They will receive a tractor along with a professional driver with utmost ease, says Trringo’s website.
