Farmers are now being trained on agricultural technology improvements via digital agriculture mode. The Agricultural Technology Management Institution (ATMA), a state agricultural department agency, serves as the nodal agency for offering online farmer training.

The Dharmapuri district's online training sessions are posted on YouTube and Spotify, bringing farmers up to speed with new films on agricultural techniques and technologies launched in the agriculture sector.

Officials from the Dharmapuri district agriculture department told a media outlet that the agency is aiming for sustainable agricultural growth by teaching farmers about the newest technology as well as growing practices and advice.

ATMA has recruited researchers and resource personnel in the district, and farmers from all eight blocks are being trained. New technologies that are emerging in the farming business are addressed through YouTube videos, and live demonstrations are offered by ATMA's researchers and resource experts.

The major goal of incorporating the show onto an internet platform is to guarantee that it reaches a larger audience.

Veteran farmers, agriculture scientists, and specialists with domain expertise are among the resource individuals enlisted by the ATMA to convey information to farmers.

According to an ATMA official, if farmers don't grasp the content the first time they see it on YouTube or Spotify, they will be allowed to watch it again and again.

According to ATMA resource personnel, farmers are delighted when films are released online since frequent viewing allows them to have a better grasp of the current farming practices.

Farmers expressed satisfaction with the online training programs, citing difficulties in attending sessions in person. Farmers have benefited greatly from the pest-eradication advice provided by online training programs.

Karuppuswamy R., a farmer from Dharmapuri district's 6th block, told a news agency: "Previously, the agriculture department held fitness classes, but due to time restrictions, we were unable to attend them."

Now, the online lessons are quite beneficial, and we are learning key techniques for eliminating pests that are causing difficulties in our region." He stated that the pest control advice provided was valuable and that one can always view the published films on YouTube to successfully execute the tips in the farmlands.
