Training of farm women in vocational skills forms an important component of the programmes of Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK). The main objective of the programmes has been promoting integrated development of the area through imparting vocational skills with special emphasis on scientific prawn farming. Sixtyfive per cent of the trained women belonged to the age group of 18-25 with education between 8th standard and matriculation. Seven per cent had passed matriculation. Sixteen per cent of the respondents' families owned fishing crafts/gears of which 53 % was small canoe crewed by two. The improved technology for prawn farming can be considered to be in the early stages of adoption in this area which may lead to wider adoption once there is a regular and assured seed supply from the hatcheries. The Kendra may organise women's clubs in the villages and get them enrolled with the Kendra so that the clubs may be asked to sponsor trainees based on the infrastructure available with each member.
