Abstract

Krishi Vigyan Kendras are innovative grassroot level agricultural institutions established during the Fifth Five Year Plan (1973-'78) by Govt, of India through the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, based on the recommendations of National Education Commission (1964- '66). The Kendras aim at providing vocational education in agriculture and allied areas including fisheries, forestry, livestock, home science etc. for increasing agricultural production and thereby achieving integrated development of the rural sector. Farmers including women, school dropouts, unemployed youth, field level extension functionaries etc. are the target groups. KVKs are functioning under ICAR Institutes, Agricultural Universities and non-governmental organizations.
