Contractors will undergo a 2-3 day intensive training program that has been designed by John Deere in collaboration with Hello Tractor, where they would get to learn about how to set up and run an agri-contracting business, how to market their business, make sales and manage their finance. They will also be taught about the basics of agronomy and mechanization to ensure they are equipped with the knowledge the need to operate a successful business.

In addition, contractors are empowered with tools that enable them manage their tractor operators and receive aggregated farmer demand that is sent to them through local agents aggregating demand in farming communities.
