Krishi Vigyan Kendra or Farm Science Centre is an innovative institution aimed at launching a "techniracy" drive in the country. By "techniracy" is meant the imparting of the relevant technical skills to the illiterate. Realising the importance of the dissemination of the technical know-how developed in the research laboratories to the actual producer in the field for increasing his yield, income and in the larger perspective, for enhancing food production, and improving the rural economy, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research has recently established a number of Krishi Vigyan Kendras for farmers engaged in Agriculture, Animal husbandry and Fisheries. The main objective of these Kendras is to apprise and train the practising as well as prospective farmers in modern and scientific line of production and utilisation in the concerned field of their occupations in a short but comprehensive course specially designed and organised on the principle of "learning by doing".
