KVK Armeli

Year of Establishment :     March, 2005
General information about the Krishi Vigyan Kendra :
The idea of establishment of Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) - Farm Science Center 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.
Total 50 KVKs established during Twelfth Plan.  At present there are 680 KVKs in India which include 460 under State Agricultural University (SAU) /CAU-State/ Central Agricultural University (CAU), 64 under ICAR Institutes, 102 under Non-government Organization, 36 under State Governments, 3 under Public Sector Undertakingsand the remaining 15 under Central University/Deemed University/Other Educational Institution. Gujarat state is having 30 KVKs of which, 07 KVKs are under Junagadh Agricultural University and Amreli is one of them, established in March, 2005.

Frontline demonstrations

Front Line demonstrations (FLDs) is a unique approach to provide an direct interface between researcher and farmers as the scientists are directly involved in planning, execution and monitoring of the demonstrations for the technologies developed by them and get direct feedback from the farmers’ field,KVK, Amreli conducted  different FLDs on crops like wheat, groundnut, cotton and pulses production in general and technology being demonstrated in particular. This enables the scientists of JAU to improvise upon the research programme accordingly. In FLDs, the subject matter scientists provide technological inputs to extension scientists to organize the demonstrations. Thus, FLDs provide an opportunity to researchers and extension personnel for understanding the farmer’s resources and requirement to fine tune and/or modify the technologies for easy adaptability at farmers’ fields.

ON FARM TRIALS

As per the mandates of KVK before transfer the technology it is tested. The objective of an on-farm trial is to predict how different management practices, variety or any technology will perform compared to each other under KVK zone environment and cropping system. The process of testing a hypothesis conducted to farmers fields so they can use the information in systematic manner and help them making production decisions on the farm.To know the difference farmers use traditional technology with tested technology at the same time or same season. Excellent work done by KVK Amreli to test different technology and variety like mulching, Onion variety, IPM of different crop etc.
