Rank this case study
 
The Government of Karnataka launched WYTEP in 1984 to provide technical training and needs of women farmers, thereby empowering women in agriculture in the region.

The services extended to the women farmers under this programme were facilitated through Assistant Agricultural officers on activities such as pre-seasonal camps, result demonstrations and method demonstrations.

The Agricultural Training Institutes (ASI) is staffed with faculty (women officers) who would assess specific training needs of the women batch-wise and conduct the programme accordingly. The women farmers were also formed in groups and learned farming practices related to buying seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, storage containers, treatment of cattle, purchase of fooder, feeds etc.

In addition, they were taught micro credit activities, saving techniques, and agro-based business.
