Attracting the youth towards farming, an initiative in developing interest by Kerala Govt.
It is said that one must not let any opportunity go away, but it is only possible when there is an opportunity in the way. Kerala government has come up with great opportunities in lifting up the youth in learning and exploring. Being a part in attracting youth towards farming, the Agriculture Department is introducing a new programme where Krishi Bhavans under the department will be open for internships.
In a nutshell, the idea is to offer educated youth insights into the diverse aspects of the farming scenario in Kerala, including crop planning and raising, harvest, marketing, extension, and administration. The State government has given administrative sanction for â‚¹72 lakh for introducing the program.
“The selected interns will assist and support department officials in conducting extension activities, distributing planting materials, collecting information from the field and helping farmers gain maximum support from the department,” according to the department. The internship is also designed to provide useful insights into aspects such as crop coverage and crop health, resource mapping, channelling technical support and office-related work such as data entry.
The internship span is for 180 days, which can be completed over a period of one year. The interns stand to earn â‚¹1,000 a month as an incentive.
