From the desk of Directorate of Extension Education…………
There are three main activities of Junagadh Agricultural University that is Education, Research and Extension. Out of these, Extension is the most important wing to bridge the gap between field and research. Extension Education helps farmers to increase farm productivity through adoption of innovations for better economy. Extension education is directly connected with socio-economic profiles of farmers, hence extension management requires specific skills for human resource development at farm condition to change attitude of farmers.
Junagadh Agricultural University works in ten districts of Saurashtra region of Gujarat state. University is playing key role regarding communication of valuable information of innovation to farmers through various media. University is also catering extension services to farmers with the help of Govt., non-govt. agencies and co-operative sectors. At mass level, University is doing its best efforts by participation of Scientists in State Govt. Programme for farmers i.e. Krishi Mahotsav Mega Mass Communication Festival.
On behalf of University, we are doing our best to cater extension services to last corners of remote area in Saurashtra region where farmer are getting benefit to improve not only there socio-economic status but also to increase national income of the country. I shall be really happy if our farmers take much more help of JAU extension system to access scientific information for increasing the farm production and productivity.
