A training center has been set up for the welfare
of farmers. It aims at imparting the latest scientific
farming technology to farmers so as to increase
their knowledge of agriculture, latest technology
and practices for improving farm productivity.
The center has, since its establishment, imparted
training to approximately 50,000 farmers. Further,
these farmers in turn impart their acquired knowledge
to other farmers thereby spreading the knowledge
for increased agricultural productivity. The institute
conducts exclusive training programs for women
farmers as well as young farmers. Training is
imparted by the staff as well as specialists invited
from different Research Institutes of Andhra Pradesh
such as A.P. Agricultural University. Our technical
staff and specialists visit the farms during season
for extension services at the farmers doorsteps.
Soil testing facilities for farmers are also provided
by the company. As a result of these trainings,
today, farmers are using fertilizers judiciously
as compared to earlier times.
