The RAWE was designed for students to gain rural life experience besides encouraging farmers to adopt modern agricultural practices. The students are divided into five teams and have been sent to T.M. Hosuru, Jakkanahalli, Alagudu, Urumarukasalagere and Santhekesalagere. They have collected socio-economic data, identified crop patterns and also tried to develop a grasp on prevailing issues pertaining to farming activities, besides chalking out plans to motivate farmers towards modern agricultural practices.
Educating farmers on integrated disease and pest management, trash management in sugarcane, vermin-compost, intercropping and paired row planting in sugarcane, bio-fertilisers, organic farming, safe use of pesticides, integrated farming system, sanitisation, soil fertility status, nutrient management to increase yield in coconut and other crops, and Azolla feeding for cattle to increase milk production, are some of the programmes.
