Early morning classes before practical sessions..!!

Morning practical sessions for Youth
Morning practical sessions for Youth

Greetings to all fro VOICE Trust.

As, our project is forwarding in a great way, we made a study on the practical difficulties that today's Youth face in agriculture.

Why rural youth is necessary in agriculture?
Active involvement of rural youth in agriculture is very necessary for the
following reasons:
1)To increase the number of producers and level of productivity.
2)To facilitate food and nutritional security.
3)The efficiency of aged farmers is reducing.
4)Youth are capable of adopting new concepts, ideas, technologies that
are vital for increasing production.
5)Active participation of rural youth will reduce their unemployment
in rural areas.
6)Involvement of rural youth will reduce their migration to urban areas.
Why rural youth is disinterested in farming?
The factors influencing farm youth to move away from farming are as
follows:
1)Risk and uncertainties in farming.
2)Unremunerative nature of agriculture.
3)Non-availability of labours or high cost of labours.
4)Seeking social recognition.
5)Climate change or global warming
6) Agricultural fatigue
Role of agri-entrepreneurship
The agri-entrepreneurship plays a significant role in the development of agriculture especially through rural youth. But there is a decrease in self-employment and regular employment whereas casual labour is increasing in rural areas. Also, in this competitive era, there is less chance to increase
employment in regular jobs. The only option is to increase self-employment.In rural areas, agriculture is a major source of self-employment. For this purpose, there is a need to develop entrepreneurship among farmers. The farm must be looked upon as a commercial enterprise unit.
In 2023, 1500 Youth were trained in organic farming and many of them focus in organic farming. Few of them have started to practice organic farming and have turned into agri-preneurs today. Chitra, who got trained in organic farming and now is selling vermi compost and other organic manures. She is also, teaching school children and youth to practice organic farming. She has entered into entrepreneurship now and progressing well. Thank you inspiring more number of Youth and let's do it together in creating agri-preneurs. Thank you for training and inspiring 1500 Youth in Agriculture during the past year.
VOICE Trust is in need of virtual volunteers. If interested, please email to connect@voice-trust.org
Thank you all once again!!
