Aims and Objectives
1. To demonstrate the latest Agricultural Technologies to the farmers as well as the extension workers of the state Department of agriculture/Non-Governmental organization with a view to reduce the time lag between the technology generation and its adoption.
2. To test and verify the technology in the socio economic condition of the farmers and to identify the production constraints.
3. To get first hand scientific feed back from the field and passing it to concern research system in order to keep the scientist abreast with the performance of the technology and the farming problems, so that they can re -orient their research, education and training programmes accordingly.
4. To impart training to the farmers, farmwomen, rural youths and field level extension functionaries by following the principle of "learning by doing".
5. To develop extension models to be adopted by general extension system at large scale multiplications
Mandates
The mandate of KVK is Technology Assessment and Demonstration for its Application and Capacity Development.
To implement the mandate effectively, the following activities are envisaged for each KVK:
1.  On-farm testing to assess the location specificity of agricultural technologies under various  farming systems.
2.  Frontline demonstrations to establish production potential of technologies on the farmers’ fields.
3.  Capacity development of farmers and extension personnel to update their knowledge and skills on modern agricultural technologies
4.  To work as Knowledge and Resource Centre of agricultural technologies for supporting initiatives of public, private and voluntary sector in improving the agricultural economy of the district.
5.  Provide farm advisories using ICT and other media means on varied subjects of interest to farmers
6. In addition, KVKs produce quality technological products (seed, planting material, bio-agents, and livestock) and make it available to farmers, organize frontline extension activities, identify and document selected farm innovations and converge with ongoing schemes and programs within the mandate of KVK.
Thrust Areas
i) Enhancing productivity of crops thorough management of problematic soil (saline).
ii) Adequate use of rain water for crop management as there is lack of good quality and sufficient underground water.
iii) Popularization of water conservation practices in district.
iv) Popularization of Integrated Farming system for sustainable agriculture.
v) Scientific Livestock Management with appropriate feeding, breeding and health management practices.
vi) Management of collar rot and white grub in groundnut, Orobanche in mustard, flag smut in wheat etc. for enhancing productivity.
vii) Extension of area under horticultural crops to increase income.
