With the mechanization of farm activities being the need of the hour and to increase the production and productivity, this centre will help farmers whose earnings are based on agriculture in Haryana as well as in India. Though subsidy is being provided for farm machinery, due to the prohibitive cost of farm machinery all farmers may not come forward to own them. Hence, the establishment of Custom Hiring Centre is a boon for farmers especially the small and marginal ones and will also provide them with hiring services of various agricultural machinery/implements used for different operations.
Announcing the establishment of Custom Hiring Center, Prof. K.P. Singh, the Vice-Chancellor, CCSHAU said “The major objective of the centre is to provide easy access to high value and technical agricultural equipment to farmers and empower them, especially the small and marginal farmers. Such centre will help in popularizing organic farming, to carry out research and extension activities in organic farming. This will also allow farmers to develop a package of practices on different modes of organic farming and will incubate them as successful organic growers.”

- Ensuring effective inter-cultivation and other cultural operations
- Offsetting the adverse economies of scale due to the high cost of individual ownership
