INDIAN COUNCIL FOR AGRICULTURE RESEARCH (I.C.A.R.) NEW DELHI has supported K.V.K. The implementing agency is BAIF GRISERV. Since 1994, this K.V.K. is functioning at Chaswad Taluka Valia District Bharuch. The field area covered is Bharuch District. The main objective of establishing K.V.K. is disseminating new research technologies of agriculture & animal husbandry to farmers through training, demonstration & field trials at their farms. This is an approach to transform scientific knowledge/findings to village & farmers. To make the process of journey of transformation of knowledge to grass root level of farmers farm. The I.C.A.R. has developed 4 men dates. Accordingly 4 main activities are carried out as a mean to achieve the goal of development.

The 4 main activities are as follows:

  • Vocational Training
  • Frontline Demonstration
  • On Farm Testing
  • In-service training
  1. VOCATIONAL TRAINING - For vocational training, K.V.K. is providing training to different groups like farmers, women & rural youth. The objective of training is to promote income generating activity & developing knowledge base for task-specific skill, crop specific scientific methods for cultivation were explained. In the current year 41 training courses were conducted & 1124 farmers were trained on various aspects of agriculture. Table is as under:

2. FRONTLINE DEMONSTRATION -

The Frontline Demonstration were arranged by K.V.K. Chaswad at the farmer’s field i.e. door-step service. In order to transfer the knowledge obtained through research on agriculture to farmers. K.V.K. convinces farmers about the importance of scientific approach to agricultural method for good quality crops, use of improved agriculture equipments designed for appropriate technology. Knowledge should not remain limited to the intellectuals who have easy access to information but, the information & knowledge/skills, appropriate equipments should reach to the fields of the farmers who are going to use it directly & get benefitted. This will certainly reduce the labour cost, timely intervention & getting results. The details of frontline demonstration done by K.V.K. Chaswad during the year 2011-12 in a tabular form is as under:

3 ON FARM TESTING – Sometimes Research work has been completed but there is no any successful achievement / results were found. Therefore New technologies / programmes on the basis of locality & area it needs to change accordingly. Keeping this point in mind KVK has launched a suitable programme in which Expert goes to farmers field for testing of adopting new technologies is called ON FARM TESTING.

4. IN SERVICE TRAINING - In order to update the knowledge at grass root level Extension workers of Bharuch & Narmada Districts & also employees of NGOs working for rural development, in service training courses are organised. This year 10 training courses were conducted for extension officers of taluka Panchayat. Total 631 were trained. Moreover, on special demand of sponsors; training courses on special subjects like increased value of cost production, marketing, etc were conducted. Activities like construction of Go downs, construction of Green House, Zero Energy Chamber, Cleaning & Grading, Marketing, etc. were done by K.V.K. & demonstration units for them were started.

LINKAGES -The K.V.K. works with agricultural universities, government & semi-government institutions working in the field of Agriculture, Cattle-Breeding, Horticulture, Forestry & Other institutions like Bank, Panchayats, Fertilizer producing Government Corporations, Rural Technology Institute. So, the need raised to keep in touch/ contact & enrich the training programmes. This needed timely & effective communication with the above mentioned institutions & subject experts. This gives a good scope for co-ordination with other agencies. K.V.K. also provides training to college students.

FACILITIES AVAILABLE AT THE K.V.K.
