The DESEE Force program is set to revolutionise FARM EXTENSION SERVICES
World-class TRAINING and MOBILE APPs are empowering the service providers
TRANSFER OF TECHNOLOGY and DATA GENERATION are the key outputs of the program
The Digitally Empowered, Self Employed, Extension Force (or, DESEE Force) is a flagship program of Tene-Ag. Under the program, rural youths are trained and digitally equipped to render farm extension services. This program can be utilised by all the organisations in the agricultural sector — Not-for-profits, For-profits and Governments — either to empower their field personnel, or to generate employment for the rural youths.
The DESEE Force is trained to provide “Crop Health Service” and “Crop Cycle Service”.
A Crop Health Service includes on-farm diagnosis of crop health problems, estimation of severity, recommendation of solutions and follow up.
A Crop Cycle Service is where the DESEE Force provides information from pre-planting to post-harvest, on all aspects of crop production.
The activities of the DESEE Force generates reliable data on the field situations for the organisations they work for.

World-class modules are developed to train the youths for providing CHS. The modules are highly interactive and practical-oriented with opportunities for self-assessment at every stage. The trainees are made to independently describe the symptoms and associate them with the causal groups. They understand the nuances of damage estimation and recommendations. They are trained to use the Sativus App to diagnose the problems, recommend solutions and followup with the farmers.
