Training

Training Programmes conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra

 for Human Resource Development

All the State Agricultural Universities have three mandates (Teaching, Research and Extension), however, our university have four mandates, i.e. apart from aforesaid there mandates, we have training as fourth mandate. The university provide training for capacity building of farmers, extension functionaries and rural youth etc. through the KVKs and various colleges. The technologies which are being developed through research work need to go out well among the stakeholders in a skilled manner. In this changing context of technologies, innovations, market scenario and farmers educational level, the agriculture become more knowledge intensive and to mitigate the challenges of ‘Information – have’ and ‘Information-have-not’. For adopting innovation in farming, the farmers need updated knowledge, specific skill and skill promoting training. Under Skill Development Training Programme (ASCI) and NFDB programme trainings are also imparted to the deserving candidates

Extension Functionaries

Extension functionaries are the lifeline of extension linkages. With the changing technologies in the frontier areas of agriculture, farmer’s needs and market context the role of extension functionaries especially the field extension functionaries become more challenging. It’s becoming now imperative to keep update to these extension functionaries. Henceforth our university is going to organise various training programme (both the on & off campus) for the extension functionaries. Under this backdrop training programme was organized in twenty thematic areas in 372 courses. Through these training courses 19134 extension functionaries were trained out of which 13029(68.09%) were male and 6105(31.91%) were female. Training on more number of courses were conducted in management in farm animals (59), productivity enhancement in field crops(47), Integrated Pest Management(40), Care and maintenance of farm machinery and implements (36).

Trainings were also imparted to Bee Keeper, Broiler Poultry Farm Worker, Quality seed grower and Mushroom Grower under the Skill Development Training Programme (ASCI) 2016-17.  Altogether 80 trainees were trained and total training hours were 800(Table No.)
