Training

List of Planned Training Programmes during 2017-18

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:
