Navratri, a nine-day-long auspicious Hindu festival, is celebrated across the country by thousands with great enthusiasm and devotion. During this period, people kept fasts and worshiped the nine avatars of Goddess Durga. Navratri, in some regions, falls after the spring harvest, and in others, during harvest season.
Vijayadashami, or Dussehra, symbolizes two celebrations, the first is the triumph of Rama over Ravana, and the second is the victory of goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasura. Dussehra is a ten-day-long celebration period celebrated across the globe by the Hindu Community and symbolizes the supremacy of good over evil. Dussehra is the shindig to express gratitude to Mother Earth for its life and livelihood-sustaining abilities.
The festival of Dussehra is closely linked with agricultural affairs. It often implies the conclusion of the monsoon season and the beginning of the more excellent winter season. Farmers usually begin harvesting the Kharif crop after Dussehra and prepare to plant the Rabi crop. Since farmers harvest the Kharif crop after  Dussehra, the influx in markets of the country naturally increased substantially and significantly during this period. Crops brought in by the farmers are Guar, Cotton, Soybean, Rice, Maize, etc., from their fields, and they try to bargain a relatively reasonable and better price for their harvest. 
The state of affairs in trading was fruitful for traders and stockists since the demand for Agriculture merchandise was quite strong from the retail markets. 
Dussehra also denotes a shift in the season as it marks the onset of winter, the season after summer and monsoons.
To celebrate this Navratri with utmost love and devotion, we at LCB Fertilisers have decided to tribute a crop each to all nine avatars of our beloved Goddess Shakti. May her blessings shower upon all.
