How primary school teachers can teach farmers about agricultural development

Farmers’ training in India is provided at the local level through Krishi Vigyan Kendras and some vocational agriculture schools. There are only 694 Krishi Vigyan Kendra in India which are not sufficient to provide village-to-village training to the farmers. Moreover, there is an inadequacy in terms of frequency of training imparted by the Kendra.

Village to village farmers’ training is essential to increase their income as well as sustainability of agriculture practices. Training provides an opportunity to the farmers to become aware of agricultural technologies and the shift in agricultural development.
