This program is the combination of on-field training and class room learning. Progressive farmers are selected and taken to various research institutes like KVK, ARS, and Private owned research centers etc where the knowledge is imparted by the experts from the field of agriculture, animal husbandry, horticulture, floriculture and many more.
Progressive farmer's training are organized in the form of Interstate (outside the state of Rajasthan), Intrastate (within the state of Rajasthan) and within District visits/tours. Our team managed almost 100 participants from various parts of Bikaner District.

Through the on-field training and class room learning it was clearly visible that participants had a life time experience which definitely changed the way of their working.Previous Years:
