Agripreneurship assists in the reduction of food costs, the uncertainty of supply, and the improvement of the diets of the country's rural and urban poor. It also promotes economic growth by increasing and diversifying income and offering entrepreneurial opportunities in both rural & urban areas.

AVPL stated that the candidates will be trained in 50 cutting-edge facilities across the country. Good agricultural practises, drone operations, boom sprayer operations, and soil testing will be covered in the training.

UPL SAS will serve as a knowledge partner to AVPL and skill development organisations such as NSDC in developing training modules and conducting training of trainers (ToTs) to make the programmes more relevant and impactful.

The trained candidates will be encouraged to open their own agri-input stores, crop advisory centres, and modern custom hiring centres to assist the farming community in obtaining quality agri-input products and farm mechanisation services, resulting in increased crop productivity and farmer income.

"We are very happy to join hands with AVPL," said Ashish Dobhal, India Region Director at UPL SAS. “Our engagement will lead to making Indian agriculture more sustainable and resilient by building potentials of ambitious young rural agriculture entrepreneurs, who will further assist farming communities to address their farming challenges."

"We are beginning this initiative from Haryana where we will train and develop 14,000 Rural Entrepreneurs in the next two years as the training partner with Haryana Skill Development Mission," said Deep Sisai, Director at AVPL. “In the coming months, initiatives will be launched in MP, Gujarat, and Jharkhand."
