agricultural training center

Covering a largely rural district, many of our beneficiaries come from farming communities and have been forced to seek our support due to the impact of drought or economic migration. Therefore, we have partnered with Syngenta Foundation India (SFI), which works to develop Indian agriculture and the welfare of farmers, with an Agricultural Training Center providing sustainable agricultural employment for young people.


How we help


The center delivers employability-orientated training for farming technicians through a 45-day residential Agriculture Technology Assistant (ATA) course. Students will learn how to apply the rapidly emerging technological developments that are helping to increase productivity in agricultural and related fields. Located adjacent to our bio-farm, class-based learning is complemented with practical sessions in the field. Backed by the Government of India, the aim is to create a new generation of agri-entrepreneurs and agriculture technology assistants with the functional knowledge and skills to apply agricultural technology in rural farming communities.


Who we help

Applications are open to those with a 12th standard or 10th standard pass with relevant experience. If you would like to find out more about the course, please email

Snehalaya gave me ambition, I wouldn’t be where I am now without that. I want the next generation of farmers to achieve the same.
