Diploma in Agricultural

About Program

There has been a steady transformation of Indian agriculture from the food-deficit subsistence farming to food-self-sufficient commercial farming. Modern technologies, dedicated efforts of Indian farmers and the programmatic support of Central and State governments have all contributed significantly for the growth of food production. However, for sustaining this growth rate and achieving the required food grain production, multi-prolonged strategy, including effective and efficient farm information delivery mechanism, is required. As such, efforts are underway to proactively integrate private sector companies, farmers’ organizations, Arbitrageurs, NGOs, Cooperatives and other agencies in the Non-governmental sector, including practicing input dealers, into the Extension Delivery Mechanism.


It is in this context, Mangalayatan University has designed a one-year diploma course titled Diploma in Agricultural Extension Services for Input Dealers (DAESI)’, which imparts relevant and location-specific agricultural education to equip the se input dealers with sufficient knowledge to transform them into para-extension professionals so as to enable them to address the day-to-day problems being faced by the farmers at field level.
