    Respected members

    My name is Shankara Narayanan. I am 31 years old and a Chartered Accountant by profession.

    I am going to work for a non profit organisation that helps improve the livelihood of small farmers.

    Apart from the practical exposure that I would get by observing the working of the farmers in the field I am very keen to also obtain a degree in agriculture through distance learning.

    However after going through various websites of agricultural universities, I have not been able to find such programs.

    Hence I would be grateful if you can :

    a) guide me with details of relevant courses that universities offers as part of its distance leaning program and/or
    b) provide syllabus of diploma degree of a reputed university along with the details of prescribed text books

    Thank you for your guidance and look forward to hearing from you.
