History of KVK:
Based on the recommendation of the Education Commission (1964-66), consideration/ review by the Planning Commission and Inter-Ministerial Committee, and further recommendation by the committee headed by Dr. Mohan Singh Mehta appointed by ICAR  in 1973 the idea of establishment of Farm Science Centre (Krishi Vigyan Kendra) was evolved. The first KVK, on a pilot basis, was established in 1974 at Pondicherry under the administrative control of the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, in 1976-77, the Planning Commission approved the proposal of the ICAR to establish 18 KVKs during the Fifth Five Year Plan. Thus, by the end of Sixth Plan, 89, KVKs had started functioning in the country. Accordingly, the Planning Commission further approved 74 new KVKs to be established during the period 1992-93.  Again in the Eighth Plan (1992-97), 78 new KVKs were approved and the same were established in the country, making total number of functional KVKs by the end of the Eighth Plan to 261. The success of KVKs at many locations created a great demand for establishment of more KVKs in the remaining districts of the country.  At present there are 631 KVKs established in the country.

  4. Organising Front Line Demonstrations (FLDs) on various crops to generate production data and feed back information.
  5. Objectives of KVKs:
  6. To demonstrate the latest agricultural technologies to the farmers as well as extension workers of State Departments of Agriculture/Horticulture/ Fishery/ Animal Science/ NGOs with a view to reduce the time lag between the technology generation and its adoption.
  7. To test and verify the technologies in the socio-economic conditions of the farmers with a view to study the production constraints and to modify the technologies to make them appropriate.
  8. To impart trainings to the practising farmers/ farm women, rural youth and field level extension functionaries by following the methods of “Teaching by doing” and “Learning by doing’.
