FARM DIVISION

MAYILADUTHURAI FARM

Irrigated by the river Cauvery, this 160-acre farmland produces organic rice, dal, lentils and coconuts.

COW SHEDS

Cattle livestock numbering 400 live on the campus of Loyal group of companies. They provide about 700 litres of milk per day which is supplied to our staff members and hostel residents. We also produce ghee (clarified butter) with an enticing aroma, thanks to the healthy practices followed on our farms.

All our farm lands have areas reserved for green grass cultivation which is used as fodder for our livestock. We also produce vermicompost that goes towards providing organic manure for the organic farming practiced at the Valli Textile Mills, Loyal Textile Mills, Chintamani Textile Mills and at our Mayavaram and Andhra units.

KOVILPATTI AND SATTUR FARMS

Hostel grocery supplies such as organic vegetables and fresh greens are procured from our Kodukkamparai farms. Gooseberries, mangoes, pomegranates and other fruits are cultivated at the fruit orchards on the Loyal Textile Mills and Chintamani Textile Mills campuses.

VERMICULTURE

Using two kinds of well known species of earthworm vermicompose preparation is made through trench method. By this Loyal improves microbial population and nitrogen fixing bacteria.
