6.Projects :
KVK Objectives:
  1. Conducting “On Farm Testing” for identifying technologies in terms of location specific sustainable land use systems.
  2. Organize training to update the extension personnel with emerging advances in agricultural research on regular basis
  3. Organize short and long – term vocational training courses in agriculture and allied vocations for the farmers and rural youths with emphasis on “learning by doing” for higher production on farms and generating self employment.
  4. Organize frontline demonstrations on various crops to generate production data and feedback information.
Mandates:
  1. Organize short and long term vocational training courses in agricultural and allied Vocations for the farmers and rural youths with emphasis on "Learning by doing" or higher production on farms and generating self employment.
  2. Organizing training to update the extension personnel with emerging advances in agricultural research on regular basis.
  3. Organize front-line demonstrations on various crops to generate production data and feedback information.
  4. Conducting "On farm testing" for identification of technologies in terms of location specific sustainable land use systems.
 
1. Agricultural technology information centre (ATIC) :
Mandate
  1. To provide a “single window” delivery system for the product and the species available from JAU to the farmers and other interested groups as a process of innovativeness in technology dissemination.
  2. To facilitate direct access to the farmers to the institutional research available in term of technology, advice, technology products, etc. For reducing technology dissemination losses.
  3. To provide mechanism for feedback from the users to the institute.
