Training

List of Planned Training Programmes during 2018-19

Training provides an opportunity to the farmers to make aware of agricultural technologies as well as the shift in agricultural development approach through farming enterprises. Training of farmers encompass all the roles of a farmer instead of looking at him only as a producer . Hence this KVK conducts several training programmes both on campus and off campus every year to farmers, farm women and rural youth. The training programmes are planned so as to meet the immediate requirements of the farming community. Training programme are scheduled at appropriate time so as to impart knowledge of suitable technology before the start of the season. Because of the diversity in crop,climate and different methods of cultivation, farmers are grouped as "farmer interest groups " so as to provide appropriate training packages to the groups. Also this KVK has concentrated on training to the school dropout children of farming/ rural community for getting acquainted with special skills through training to secure some employment or practice the same in their farm. Efforts have also been concentrated to empower the women by giving them vocational trainings.

Following are the important training activities taken up by the KVK:

Post harvest technology: Impart training on post harvest of Fruits and Vegetables their packing and storage techniques, processing of Black pepper,Arecanut,Cardomom,Ginger,Turmeric so as to meet international standards.

Soil and Water Conservation: Impart knowledge regarding soil health which includes maintainance of soil organic matter, soil nutrients , soil aeration, drainage system, irrigation etc.

Value Addition: Vegetable and Fruits processing(preperation of Jam,Jelly,Squashes,Papad,Pickles,etc.), value addition of spices like pepper,ginger,nutmeg etc.

Integrated Pest and Disease Management: Impart training on maintainance of plant health, identification of pest and diseases and adopting IPM measures through safe use of pesticides and grain storage.

Vocational Trainings: Entrepreneurship development, Apiculture,Mushroom cultivation, Hand made paper, Bamboo crafts making, Fashion designing,Bakery training etc.

In every training programme KVK personnel educate the farmers and encourage them to adopt crop insurance, sense of savings , health insurance ,health and environment. The farmers are also given the information about the schemes available in different developmental organizations.

On Farm Testing

Through On Farm Trials, Krishi Vigyan Kendra does comparitive studies in farmers fields to come to a conclusion which of the technologies tested is more suitable to the resources available & is cost effective. This is a form of participatory study where farmers perspective is given most importance. The results of such studies can later be made available to farmers.
