Training of Trainers under SDF Funded Project “Post Harvest Management and Value Addition of Fruits in the Production Catchments of SAARC countries”
The SDF funded project has successfully completed a 5 days Training of Trainers (ToT) program on post harvest management and value addition of fruits to 12 Agriculture Extension Officers of Mongar Dzongkhag. Mongar has a good production of diverse fruits and with the establishment of the IFPP at Lingmithang. There is a very good scope for promotion of fruit based cottage scale industries. However it is a very big challenge for the National Post Harvest Center to reach every aspiring individual/entrepreneur throughout the country, so the Center trained these Agriculture Extension Officers, so that after the training they can transfer the knowledge and the practical skills gained through the ToT program in their respective areas.
