Training of Specialised Agric-Service Providers

The group economic activity in post harvest management of agri-horti commodities is getting increased attention by rural youth including women entrepreneurs and PGs. The interested entrepreneurs / PGs and the rural youth need to be provided specialised training in this area of economic activity. This would help develop large number of agri-businesses in rural areas in the backdrop of availability of multiple marketing channels and outlets in urban areas. A large number of PGs are being organized through District Rural Development Agency (DRDA). The PGs and the rural youth need to be empowered and linked to the marketing activities envisaged in the project. These will require training in agri-horticulture commodity processing and marketing. The ultimate objective is to link them to FCSC for marketing of their produce.
