This type of program is basically designed for farmers in order to learn new techniques and methodology in the field of agriculture. The conference is held by the scientists and experts from Agriculture University, Animal Husbandry Department Experts, KVK's, ARS etc, so that the farmers get the maximum exposure.
Navyug Vikas & Anusandhan has been conducting this type of program with the assistance of ATMA Department so that farmers can directly learn from the experts. In 2013-14 we conducted various farmer scientist interactive awareness camps benefitting almost 200 plus men/ women farmers. The farmer scientist interactive awareness camps were conducted in Khajuwala, Jhajhu, Kolayat, and 17 KYD.
