One of the main thrust areas of the KVK is conducting short and long duration training programmes in Agriculture and allied fields to benefit of farmers, farm women, rural youths and extension functionaries. Training needs of the people of the operational area are assessed and based on that on campus and off campus training programmes are conducted. These trainings enable to develop competence and confidence among the trainees for adopting the modern technologies for enhancing agriculture production and productivity. KVK also organizes vocational trainings tailored according to the need of the target group. More emphasis is given to self employment oriented trainings to unemployed youth and self help groups.

Most of the on campus trainings are conducted for imparting the skills through practical training in the instructional units of the KVK. Improving productivity and self-employment generation are the basic objective behind the on campus skill oriented training programmes. Off campus trainings are conducted in the villages particularly on the farmers field where the method demonstration as well as technological output are shown to the trainees. The field of the innovative farmers are the venue to conduct off campus training programmes. Total 1600+ training programmes were conducted for practicing farmers and farm women. After training programmes, necessary inputs, services and consultancies are made available so that the technology adoption could be improved. Most of the training programmes are interlinked with the demonstration and trials that are conducted to extend solution to the location specific problems and to improve the productivity. Similarly some programmes are focused to reduce the cost of production, ensure natural resource management particularly soil and water besides improving quality of the produce, where as some programmes are focused for agriculture diversification based on market demand and available local resources.

In the current year- 2022 we have conducted total 116 on and off campus training programmes on various disciplines. (Please download APR -2022 for detailed information.)
