Year of Establishment :     March, 2005
General information about the Krishi Vigyan Kendra :
            The idea of establishment of Farm Science center (KVK) was evolved by the recommendations of the education commission/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 first KVK was established in 1974 at Pondicherry under the administrative control of the Tamilnadu Agriculture University, Coimbtore. The number of KVKs increased 290 during the V to IX Five Year Plan. The Hon'ble Prime Minister of India announced that by the end of 2007 there should be one KVK in each district of the country.
            This has resulted in establishment of 551 KVKs at the end of Tenth Plan which include 371 under State Agricultural Universities (SAU) and Central Agricultural University (CAU), 40 under ICAR Institute, 88 under NGOs, 33 under State Governments, 3 under PSUs and the remaining 16 under other educational institutions. At present there are 641 KVKs established in the country with 28 KVKs of Gujarat. 6 KVKs are present under Junagadh Agriculture University and Amreli is one of them, established in March, 2005.
