The leading agricultural machinery and automobile manufacturing Chinese Company ‘Shifeng’ are launching small power tractors in Punjab. Following the successful marketing of the small tractors in KP, now the tractors are being introduced in Punjab under the name of Dailuda & Shifeng.
A representative of Dailuda-Shifeng, Rashid Mukhtar said, ‘We are selling our small horsepower tractors in KPK for the last seventeen years, which are successfully helping the small scale land-holders to meet their requirement of plowing and harvesting. Now we have decided to explore the market of the Punjab province where the huge potential exists in the shape of small farmers who cannot afford the big tractors owing to the high prices.’
He spoke to a selective gathering of stakeholders at the sidelines of the Punjab Agri-Expo 2019. It was arranged by Punjab Agriculture Department (PAD) at the Lahore Expo Centre. At the occasion many dignitaries along with the Pakistan-China Joint Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCJCCI) Vice Chairman Standing Committee on China Affairs, Yousaf Fa, PCJCCI Salah Uddin were present.
According to Mukhtar, the 25 HP to 35 HP small tractors in Punjab will be introduced. He said, ‘Price of our machine will be in their reach and it will be sufficient to meet all their agricultural needs.’
In response to a question, he said that the company also produces agricultural implements supported by its small tractors but in Pakistan, there are already good manufacturers whose implements can be used for these tractors.
