Training will be conducted in select villages in Andhra Pradesh by using mobile bus that can seat 20 farmers. It has audio-visual facilities to screen demo programmes.

“We will disseminate good agricultural practices with emphasis on application technologies for the mango crop cultivators,” Srihari, Managing Director of eFresh, said here in a press release on Tuesday.
