Constraints Encountered by the Beneficiaries of Krishi Vigyan Kendra in North Eastern Region of India
AbstractThe study was conducted among 200 farmers of ten purposively selected Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs) in North Eastern region of India. The respondents were interviewed using a questionnaire for identifying the constraints and their suggestions for future improvement of KVK activities. The study revealed that unavailability of labour, unavailability of good quality seed and other inputs, unavailability of information about pest and disease management at right time,(inability to purchase modern agricultural implements and lack of capital were the major constraints. The respondents suggested that timely availability of seed and other inputs, regular and continuous monitoring, linking farmers to financial institutuions for financial support, and more long term practical oriented training programme are important for strengthening KVK activities.
