The tour wouldn’t be complete without visiting the demonstration farm of their Amiran Farmers Kit. The Amiran Farmer's Kit (AFK) allows small scale farmers affordable access to modern agricultural technologies, methods and inputs of the highest standard. The Kit is designed to meet the needs of the specific farmer or group of farmers by adapting the components of the Kit to suit the climate, terrain, and agricultural experience of the farmer. The AFK comes complete with installation, training and an agro-support package that would allow Amiran to teach the “Amiran Farmer” how to grow and then stay with the farmer throughout the season to ensure the best results.
