The Krishi Vigyan Kendra is a district level Farm Science Center established by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), New Delhi under aegis of Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar Welfare Society, Allahabad  for speedy transfer of technology to the farmers fields in Kaushambi District (U.P.). The operational area of this Krishi Vigyan Kendra comes under the Zone IV of U.P. The aim of Krishi Vigyan Kendra is to reduce the time lag between generation of technology at the research institutions and it's transfer to the farmer's field for increasing production, productivity and income from the agriculture and allied sectors on a sustained basis.

It is nothing but one stop shop of agriculture where the farmer gets the technology & the inputs together. Through this center we assist farmers in :

kvk Biofertilizers Azotobacter, phosphate solublising bacteria, Decomposing culture etc.
kvk Biopesticides such as HNPV
kvk Biofungicides such as Trichoderma, paceliomyces
kvk Other agents of biological control of pests such as trichocards, lady bird beetels.
kvk Seed of latest varieties of cereals, pulses & oilseeds.
kvk Sugarcane sets
kvk Grafts of improved varieties
kvk Pheromone and  Chemical traps
kvk Mastitis controlling kits
kvk Vermicompost & earthworms
kvk Clinical help to animals
kvk Artificial Insemination facility to improve the breed of cattle.

3. Farmer's hostel
The Krishi Vigyan Kendra has a farmer's hostel that can accommodate more than 125 farmers at a time. The hostel rooms are well furnished too. The facilities are also available to outside farmers who visit us during study tours on nominal charges.

4. Farm
The Krishi Vigyan Kendra possesses 50 acres of land. The main purpose of the farm is to demonstrate the latest agricultural practices. It also acts as a tool to do applied research on agricultural Technologies & undertake trials before their transfer to farmers. After a careful planning and analysis soil types, the farm was divided in to three major blocks of Horticulture, Agronomy and Nursery unit. This was followed by planting mother plants of horticulture crops such as Mango, Guava, Amla, berries etc that are mainly grown in the district.

5. Green House
Recently the Krishi Vigyan Kendra has constructed green house naturally ventilated type to undertake floriculture.

6. Soil & water testing laboratory
This well equipped laboratory analyses soil & water samples. The laboratory is supported with computer software for more precise interpretation of results. Every soil sample is analysed for eight parameters such as pH, Electric Conductivity, Organic carbon, available nitrogen, available phosphorus, & available Potassium, Exchangeable sodium, Calcium & magnesium content.

7. Farmer's Library
The Krishi Vigyan Kendra has wide collection of books on all the fields of agriculture. All these books are available to farmers for reference free of cost.

8. Plant health clinic
We have established a plant health clinic that provides farm consultancy services of all types free of cost to farmers. Farmers may visit us with their querries or write to us for the guidance. Diagnostic visits are also arranged to farmer's fields in case the problem needs further in field investigations.

9. Vermicompost Unit
This demonstrates the conversion of farm waste into enriched compost. Two different species of worms are reared so that the culture can be made available to farmers.

KVK Activities

1. Training
On an average this KVK conducts 50 to 60 need- based training programs in a year for farmers, farmwomen & rural youth. 40-50% of them are long duration trainings. More emphasis has been given on long duration self employment oriented training for school dropouts & unemployed rural youth Many participants on completion of the training have been Successfully self employed by way of establishing their own poultry, Goatery, Nursery Dairy & sericulture unit. Efforts have also been concentrated to empower the women component technically as they play a very vital role in agricultural operations.


2. Demonstrations
Every year Krishi Vigyan Kendra conducts several demonstrations on farmers fields on technologies released by research institutes, universities. These are mainly related to latest released varieties, methods to control pest & diseases, technologies to increase yields, agri implements to reduce drudgery of women, technologies to reduce cost of production etc.

3. Technology Assessment & Refinement
For any major problem in agriculture there are many remedies suggested by various research organizations. Through on farm testing Krishi Vigyan Kendra does comparitive studies in farmers fields to come to conclusion which of the technologies tested is more suitable to the resources available & is cost effective. This is a form of participatory study where farmers perspective is given most importance. The results of such studies can later be made available to farmers.
