Jun 03 - 07 Jun, 2013
Revitalizing agriculture and bringing it back to its past glory has been at the center of various government programmes aimed at improving the living condition of the rural populace. Recent studies at ARMTI have revealed that rural cooperative members do not optimize the use of resources through economy of scale. Consequently, the cooperative societies have not been able to acquire assets and expand enterprise base to ensure employment generation and wealth creation. Therefore, the capacity of extension staff, grassroots facilitators and change agents should be strengthened in order to provide advisory services and equip cooperators with necessary skills to achieve their development goals.
