Farmer Training LMS by Global Parli is a dedicated training portal for rural farmers in India which provides customized, byte sized learning content which aims at empowering farmers and ultimately increase their income.
This training is currently tailored in Marathi for farmers in Maharashtra, but soon will be available in multiple languages for a plethora of fruit and crop plantations across India.
Only trained farmers can become prosperous and lead to a rural economic transformation.
We are building a portal that uses satellite data as well as ground data to monitor each and every farm and give monitoring reports every five days. Furthermore, it will also trigger alarms whenever a tree/ plant is in distress so that attention can be given to it.
In the Indian agriculture ecosystem, the farmers and all agri-stakeholders have isolated conversations. Thus the real potential of agriculture has not been unleashed.
Gramin, which is India’s 1st open and free platform brings inclusivity with the help of technology by strengthening the communication. It reduces the divide between farmers and various integral elements of agriculture like research, new-tech, advisory, input and output markets, processing etc. It organises and displays information in a personalised way relating to their crop’s stage.
Gramin leverages the power of social networking to form a digital community with a win-win for all stakeholders especially farmers.
With Gramin, farmers have access to more choices and opportunities for buying agri-inputs and selling their produce. Farmers also have access to abundant knowledge, training sessions and discussion forums for instant solutions or expert advice.
The stakeholders can gain multiple insights into farmers and agriculture crop-wise, region-wise, demography-wise, etc to increase outreach and analyse customer pain points and needs to provide better support
Bhoomi Sanvardhan is an effort by Mayank Gandhi which aims to bring vermiculture to our farmers in order to improve organic content in the soil. So far thousands of farmers have availed the benefits of this scheme to rejuvenate their soil.
Organic matter in the soil promotes soil structure. This, in turn, serves to limit soil erosion and enhances water infiltration and holding capacity, providing better living conditions for plant roots and soil organisms.
Since the inception of our Bhoomi Sanvardhan (Soil Conservation) scheme, our ground team across different working regions has been organizing regular training sessions for beneficiary farmers who have expressed interest in vermiculture and have received the needful resources from us which includes vermiculture beds, 3kgs of earthworms, training material etc. for every farmer.
One can enroll with us by calling your nearest Global Parli office or one of our representatives listed below.

At our public meeting of farmers on 27th Feb, farmers from all districts of Marathwada had come to witness the farm and learn more about it.
