Welocme to KVK Boudh
Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK)

The Indian Council of Agricultural Research has established a wide network of Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs) in the country aiming at assessment, refinement and demonstration of proven technology/products. Now, 33 KVKs are operating in Odisha, out of which 31 KVKs are under the control of OUAT, one by CIFA and one by NRRI, Cuttack.

Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK), Boudh

Krishi Vigyan Kendra (Farm Science Centre), Boudh was established by ICAR in 1st July 2005 under the control of OUAT at Paljhar farm. KVK serves as the knowledge hub and resource centre of agricultural technologies for the farmers in the district. It operates as per the mandates of ICAR for the upliftment of socio-economic condition of the farming community. KVK lies between 20043’51.69 North to 20045’16.66 North Latitude and 84013’52.22 East to 84013’56.27 East Longitude. The district is bounded by River Mahanadi & Angul District to the North, Kandhamal District to the South, Nayagarh District to the East and River Tel & Subarnapur District to the West, covering a geographical area of 3098 sq. km, the district lies between 200 22’ N to 200 50’ North Latitude and 830 34’E to 84049’ East Longitude.

Krishi Vigyan Kendra is a district level innovative institution mainly concerned with Transfer of Technological knowledge through On-Farm Testing (OFT), Front Line Demonstration (FLD), training and Farm Advisory Services at grass root level. The KVK, Boudh since its inception from 2005 has been striving hard to achieve this mandate under the aegis of Orissa University of Agriculture & Technology, Bhubaneswar. The activities of the KVK have supported a cross section of farming communities to enhance productivity of rice, vegetables, oilseeds & pulses respectively. The achievement has been possible with the evaluation of new technology through On Farm Trials in participatory research mode, creating an impact to accept the best technology through Front Line Demonstration followed by capacity building training programmes. It is needless to highlight the impact of Kissan Mela, Exhibitions, Field days, Scientist visit to farmer’s field, Published extension literatures, Film show, Exposure visit and other extension activities which has motivated the farmers towards desirable direction.

Mandate
Assessment, refinement and demonstration of proven technologies/products under different ‘micro farming’ situations.

KVK Activities

The specific activities to carry out this mandate are:

    • Conducting On-farm Testing to identify the location specificity of agricultural technologies under various farming systems
    • Organizing Frontline Demonstrations to establish its production potentials of various technologies on the farmers’ fields
    • Conducting need based training of farmers and rural youth to update their knowledge and skills in modern agricultural technologies
    • Conducting training of extension personnel to orient them in the frontier areas of technology development
    • Work as knowledge and resource centre of agricultural technology for supporting initiatives of public, private and voluntary sector for improving the agricultural economy of the district
    • In addition, in order to speed up the process of dissemination of technology, a large number of various extension activities and production of seeds and planting materials, livestock, poultry and fisheries breeds and various bio-products are taken up by the KVKs.
    Uniqueness……
      • Creation of valuable resources in terms of manpower and assets
      • Confirmation of technologies to suit local specificity
      • Showcasing the frontier technologies
      • Capacity building among stakeholders
      • Front runner in technological application, information and inputs
      • Participatory approaches in planning, implementing, executing & evaluation
