100 POs of the 35th batch of RIBM 1 and RIBM 2 were taken for a Rural Visit on February, 13, 2017, as a part of their program.
The officers visited the farm of Mr. Mahadevaiah, who is a progressive farmer (following greenhouse cultivation) of the M Karenahalli village in Ramanagar District. They also learned about the dairy practices and green fodder cultivation in the area, apart from inspecting the gobar-gas plant, bio-digester, and coconut farm. Mahadevaiah relies on poly house technology to grow capsicum and tomatoes, and gets a good yield from it.
The officers also visited the Artisan Training Centre at the Jogaradoddi village in Ramanagar Taluka. The centre, which is funded by NABARD, trains students in crafting stone and wooden statues.
