Campco has seen an overwhelming response to its Adike Kaushalya Pade-I training session, which is underway at CPCRI Vittal, and will conclude on December 9,2018.

The five-day training programme for Areca Palm Climbing received 85 applications, but is limited only to 30 participants. But the company said that it would conduct another session for the remaining applicants.

Those who have already submitted their application and not qualified in the first training programme will automatically be considered for the second training programme and need not submit their applications again.

The inspiration of holding such sessions arose from the training programme at Thirthahalli held in the month of October by the Elite Group in association with the University of Agricultural and Horticulture Sciences (UAHS), Shivamogga.

The trainees are now self employed earning over Rs 1,200 per day. Youth in the age group of 18 to 35 have come forward in large numbers to undergo the training.  

All necessary equipment required for the skill development and safety will be sponsored by Campco. The trainees will also be covered under insurance. A certificate and an ID card will be issued to the trainees at the successful completion of this training.  

Besides, Campco will publish in its website the list of candidates along with their contact details. This would benefit not only the unemployed youth, but also facilitate the growers to avail such services in areas where there is acute shortage of areca palm climbers.

S R Satishchandra, president, Campco, and managing trustee, Arecanut Research and Development Foundation (ARDF), lauded the efforts of the co-organisers, including the Central Plantation Crops Research Institute (CPCRI); UAHS, Shivamogga; the Department of Horticulture, Karnataka; ARDF, Mangaluru; the Adike Pathrike and All India Areca Growers’ Association, for joining hands.  

“If all the farmers’ associations, organisations, cooperative societies and the department dealing with agriculture and horticulture come together in this manner, it would herald a new movement for the farmers,” he said.
