Krishi Vigyan Kendra is an innovative institution with a multidisciplinary team of subject matter specialist for taking up various frontline programmes in agricultural and allied sectors including on farm testing to identify the location specificity of technology. Frontline demonstration to establish its production potentials on the farmers fields, training of the farmers to update their knowledge and skills, and training of extension personel to orient them in the frontier areas of technology development. Each KVK has a provision of an instructional farm to be developed in such a way that it is educational as well as profitable. The instructional farm helps in conducting the training programmes by following the principles of "Teaching by Doing" and "Learning by Doing".
KVK's provide not only in agriculture and allied vocations but also in other income generating activities that may suplement the income of farm families. The methods employed in training could be formal and non-formal or a combination of both , depending upon the needs but emphasis remains to be on work-experiance, as suggested by Mohan Singh Metha Committee Report that "the programme should be operated as a plan of continuing education both in the technical and in the general sense".
