The AIP partners believe that adoption of experiential learning can holistically transform the agricultural sector with professionals engaged in innovation-led enterprises in the rural environment, thereby triggering a competitive edge for the Indian agriculture and food processing sector. There has to be collaboration between the knowledge creators (i.e. the universities), the students and the commercializing partners (i.e. the corporate sector), to bring in envisioned change in the rural society.

Continuous and innovative engagement will help in creating new pathways to undergo experiential learning and empowering farmers, using technology, to boost productivity and attaining a better livelihood.

Corporations like Tata Chemicals, John Deere, input companies and food process ventures have taken active interest to support the initiative due to considerable gains perceived in empowering farmers to address contemporary challenges in agriculture productivity, value addition and sustainability factors. The farmer support and the small food value addition venture support program by way of adoption of safe food preparation practices and value addition technologies to grains, fruits and vegetables will help farmers and small enterprises in the region to enhance their income considerably.

The Agricultural Innovation Partnership’s extension-focused activities provide a series of technology dissemination and adoption modules focused on farmers and micro-enterprises. These tools empower the farming community to formulate ways to adopt contemporary learning practices and accelerated technology absorption strategies for enhancing the food, economic and social value chain. The AIP facilitates in moving technology to micro-enterprises and farms to introduce value addition systems to farm-side, process oriented rural interventions.
