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.
