12 Mauritian farmers go to India

Some 12 members of cooperative societies, who will attend a course on organic farming at the National Centre of Organic Farming (NCOF) in Ghaziabad, India, were handed over training materials and cheques under the Cooperative Development Fund Education Scheme.

The participants will have the opportunity to acquire the technical know-how and expertise during their 30-days stay at NCOF following which they will be provided with a certificate in organic farming. On their return, trained participants will have the opportunity to share their knowledge with other planters and they will also be encouraged to certify for the Mauritius General Agricultural Practices as well as aspire for an international accreditation which will support their development. They will leave at the end of this month.
