Diploma in Agricultural Extension Services for Input Dealers (DAESI)

GPS Institute of Agricultural Management offers one-year diploma course titled “Diploma in Agricultural Extension Services for Input Dealers (DAESI)” for the existing and prospective agri input dealers. This program is aimed at imparting relevant and location-specific agricultural education to equip these 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. In order to build their technical competency in agriculture and to facilitate them to serve the farmers better and to act as para – extension professionals, National Institute of Agricultural Extension Management (MANAGE) has launched a self-financed “One-year Diploma in Agricultural Extension Services for Input Dealers (DAESI) Program” during the year 2003 with a course fee of Rs.20, 000/- to the input dealers. Due to positive impact of the program, Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers’ Welfare, Government of India has decided to implement this program for Input dealers in all the States of the country.

The program will be implemented by MANAGE through State Agricultural Management and Extension Training Institutes (SAMETIs).

The technical information is delivered through Contact Classes by Agricultural Experts & Practitioners at district level on Sundays or Market holidays for 48 days including field visits spread over a year. Details of program is available in the guidelines
