ACTIVITY

Traning

The Krishi Vigyan Kendra has several activities like conducting ON as well as OFF campus trainings in various disciplines,conducting frontline demonstration of proven technologies on farmer`s fields in cereals, pulses, oilseeds and horticultural crops. It has a programme of on farm testing (OFT) of technologies on farmer`s fields and collecting feedback for refinement. KVK also established functional linkages with other related organizations. It actively participates in extension activities like Exhibitions, field days, seminars, kisan melas and also contributes in mass Media like All India Radio and Doordarshan programmes, publishing popular articles and extension literature like folders, booklets and technical reports etc. It also conducts village surveys for assessing the technological gaps and training needs of farmers, rural youth, farm women and offers technical guidance to needy farmers.

Technology Assessment Refinement

For any major problem in agriculture there are many remedies suggested by various research organizations. Through on farm testing Krishi Vigyan Kendra does comparative studies in farmer’s fields to come to conclusion which of the technologies tested is more suitable to the resources available and is cost effective. This is a form of participatory study where farmers perspective is given most importance.  

Front Line Demonstrationration


The main objective of front line demonstration (FLDs) is to educate the farmers through results obtained in terms of higher yields and also provide an effective learning situation of farmers. Every year Krishi Vigyan Kendra conducts several demonstrations on farmer’s fields on technologies released by research institutes, universities. These are mainly related to latest released varieties, methods to control pest and diseases, technologies to increase yields, agricultural implements to reduce drudgery of women, technologies to reduce cost of production etc.

Farmers Training
 
Farmers training are an important mandate of this Kendra. The main purpose is to provide new and latest knowledge and develop new skills required for adoption of the modern technology and to build up desirable scientific attitude amongst farmers, farm women, rural youths and other grass-root level extension functionaries. To explore the specific training needs of the farmers, bench mark surveys of selected villages are the being conducted. A multi-disciplinary team of trainers is approach to the selected villages to collect information according to a predecided questionnaire including their existing practices and resources. This survey also includes socio-economic status and annual income of the individual farmer’s family after the gap point analysis of this information. The information is adopted for the various activities of the Kendra and an action plan is developed for more efficient and rapid work. Participatory Rural Appraisal and RRA tools are used by the team. This Kendra has adopted 55 villages. Several gap points have been identified.

Crop Production


The impact assessment under crop production revealed that 84% of the respondents had fully adopted the improved seed in various crops, whereas 12% farmers had adopted this practice partially Regarding the use of balanced fertilizer, 76% farmers have adopted these practices.During the study it was found that most of the farmers had applied the higher basal dose of di-ammonium phosphate (DAP) and urea than the recommendation. The additional amount of fertilizer goes totally waste, adding unnecessarily to the cost of production.

Animal Husbandry


During the investigation and discussion the farmers it was observed that before training most of them had not adopted the balanced ration and mineral mixture for the animals. Due to imbalanced ration the animals suffered from diseases like irregular estrus cycle, repeat breeding. Prolepses of uterus and problem during calving .Now all these problems are solved by using regular balanced ration and mineral mixture to them, which in addition saved the expenditure on medicine for the treatment.

Horticulture

The impact of training conducted on various topics under Horticulture is specified. It reveals that 80% of the farmers have adopted fully or partially the high-yielding varieties of vegetables after getting training and about 68% are using plant-protection measures.

Agricultural Engineering

According to the survey conducted after varoius training programmes in the field of agricultural Implements, it was found that 84% farmers adopted the hand-wheel hoe for weeding and 80% farmers are using the seed cum fertilizer drill for sowing practices.The time and labour thus saved gives the economic gain to the farmers.

Need-Felt Short-TermTraining

The short term training are organized according to the need of farmers regarding increase in production by the adoption of new technologies.These trainings were organized in the field of crop production, fruit and vegetable production, maintenance of improved agricultural implements, farm machinery, milk production, plant production, home science and fisheries in the adopted villages for 1 to 2 days duration.
