Distance Education Programme provides agricultural education to the literate farmers, farm women, school dropouts and unemployed youth for empowering them so as to go for self-employment. So far 13527 farmers have been enrolled in ten different courses such as paddy cultivation, vegetable cultivation, fruits cultivation, betelvine cultivation, groundnut cultivation, pisciculture, dairy farming, honey bee keeping, poultry rearing and mushroom cultivation. Latest technologies and skills are communicated to them through postal correspondence. There are about 721 certificate holders through distance education. They have assumed the role of key communicators on agricultural innovations  in the villages. Twenty-one rural drop-outs and neo-literates have been self-employed through distance education and they have been able to get loan from the banks, using the certificates issued to them.
