About Us

Indian Council of Agricultural Research mooted the idea of establishing Krishi Vigyan Kendra’s to conduct “ON FARM TESTING” for identifying technologies in terms of location specific sustainable land use systems, to Organise “FRONT LINE DEMONSTRATIONS” to establish its production potentials on the farmers’ fields and to generate production data and feed back information, conduct “TRAINNINGS” for farmers to update their knowledge and skills in modern agricultural technologies, training of extension personnel to orient them in the frontier areas of technology development on regular basis,to arrange “VOCATIONAL TRAINNINGS” both long and short term for the farmers, rural youth and women with emphasis on’ learning by doing’ for higher production on farms and generating self employment and various “EXTENSION ACTIVITIES” in order to speed up the process of dissemination of technologies.


Krishi Vigyan Kendra (Ernakulam) functioning under Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (ICAR) aims at the overall development of the district in agriculture and allied sectors. The Kendra has linkages with all the line departments in the district in addition to contacts with most of the Agricultural Universities and all the ICAR Institutes in the country. These linkages helps the Kendra updated on the recent technologies in agricultural and allied sectors. Highly qualified professionals in each fields of agriculture working with Kendra facilitate to modify these technologies suiting to local requirements by adopting various scientific methodologies. Thus locally viable technology takes birth. A successful technology would be popularized by the Kendra whereas feedback from a failure would be sent back to the research institutions for refinement. The impact of our technology dissemination activities is visible in the technology adoption rate by farmers.
