Abstract

Vocational training programs aim at enhancing adoption of technological innovations in agriculture to achieve sustainable food security, reduce poverty, and stimulate employment by building human and institutional capacity. An important indicator of the impact of training program is the extent to which the farmers have adopted the practices of cultivation technology. The adoption of technologies that have the potential to contribute to sustainable farming systems can promote cultivation of plants. In this issue, Arshad et al. report that the working efficiency of farmers could be enhanced by offering them training courses in date palm cultivation. The higher cultivation of plants depends on farmers adopting the appropriate technology and management practices. The adoption of practices can be enhanced by raising farmers' general awareness and knowledge to change their perceptions and attitudes towards sustainable farming practices.
