Farmers Training Programme

Farmer training improves the profitability of the farm by improving technical skills, knowledge, attitude and behavior. Training is an investment in people to increase knowledge in farm management and improve human resource planning. It is important to disseminate information about new technologies so that farmers become enable to make use of the latest agricultural developments. There also exists a gap between research findings and the demand of farmers. The main objective of RAEDC training is to transmit latest technical know-how to farmers to increase their yield and ultimately income of the farming community. The pace of technology transfer can only be matched if the farming community is trained at the same speed. Keeping in view these points farmers training courses are being arranged by RAEDC as:
