The training helps farmers produce their maximum capacity of harvest by minimizing their losses, in addition to reinforcing a skill set which extends well beyond one agricultural season to ensure high wheat production and
yield. Those farmers will be supported regarding their income, and strategic wheat crops will be available for people in the next year which will be reflected on resilience of local economy to have more sustainable assistance.
