TAFE to train women farmers

| Updated on: Mar 18, 2013

Close on the heels of the success of its lab-to-land initiative to train the farming community, tractor major TAFE has decided to extend the programme to women peasants.

A pilot project to train women farmers in farm management — soil conservation, pest management, yield improvement, tractor driving and implement usage — will soon be launched, TAFE said.

The company said this during a farmers’ day event called ‘Raithara Dhinachanarane’ organised by the company at Doddaballapur near Bangalore. Over 350 farmers, including women farmers, participated in the day-long programme.

Farm scientists and experts from University of Agricultural Sciences, Bangalore, Indian Institute of Horticulture, Bangalore, and TAFE, deliberated upon improving the output of fruits like mango, grapes, sapota, banana, guava and papaya, and vegetables like cauliflower, cabbage, brinjal and tomato.
