Richness of Rural Production Cooperatives
rural production cooperatives act similar to the non-governmental agricultural
service centers, Shirzad implied that it is the time of formalizing the
services of the rural production cooperatives as one of their main duties.
Development of non-governmental agricultural service centers dose does not deny
the existence of rural production cooperatives; rather it connotes the
conceptual richness. It means each cooperative representing a specialized
polyclinic, indicates that it accepts a responsibility which engages it in a
win-win game. This facilitates not only the financial statement but also a kind
of metamorphosis which push forward them toward specialized activities. In this
process, the rural production cooperatives are permitted to use the logo of
(SANKA) which enables them to take advantage of the legal authority of SANKA.
time to get a fresh perspective. We should take advantages of every change.

Head of SANKA
expressed hope on cooperation between two organizations
The head of
SANKA, dr.Ramezannajad said that by adopting such an approach, we hope to
trigger new fields of cooperation.
the challenges of the agricultural sector, the head of SANKA, Dr.
Ramezaninejad, maintained that the agriculture sector suffers from lack of
non-state capital, meaning that private capital raising is not rapid enough.
Tackling this challenge requires to accentuate the creative business for
capital raising. Furthermore, SANKA in cooperation with CORC developed a
leasing system for capital raising as a new monetary and banking tool.
low rate of sharing agricultural knowledge and technology, he called the
extension and education, as the main mission of SANKA, since it is generally
agreed that knowledge creates productivity.
the huge volume of data in many disciplines, unfortunately, we have faced the
knowledge scarcity in the agriculture sector. Although knowledge extension is
accentuated by the Article of Association, it was neglected during the last 15 years. Development of
knowledge-based corporation as a one proactive remained uncompleted. We believe
in the development of non-governmental agricultural service centers as the
final lost ring which could extend agricultural knowledge and technology. We are going to extend using drones in the
different parts of agriculture. Henceforth, the non-governmental agricultural
service centers would act as a showcase to represent the sustainable
agricultural technologies", Ramezannejad said.
the lack of integrated and strong private organizations in the agricultural
sector, he said that in cooperation with farming system bureau of CORC, we
could develop strong private enterprises which empower the agriculture sector
to face the water scarcity challenges.
membership of SANKA amounts 250,000 experts whose skill training can strengthen the agricultural
sector, this will not be provided except through the leading private sector.
Through the geographical arrangement of these members in the field as well as
their training with the help of the CORC, we can achieve this goal through in 2497 villages
of the country", the Official added.
