ICAR-KVK, Chitradurga established in the year 2000  and  functioning as per ICAR  mandates under the administrative control of KSNUAHS, Shivamogga with the aim to provide services to the  farming community in the district.  Keeping in view of the district proneness to drought condition intermittently, it is the obligation of the KVK to transfer appropriate technologies through integrated approach to the farming community for sustainable production and livelihood. In this context, our KVK has developed good infrastructure facilities including soil and water testing laboratory, bio-agent production unit, model farm for demonstrations of innovative technology for the benefit of the farmers.  A team of experienced scientists representing Soil Science, Agronomy, Horticulture, and Plant protection  with supporting staff made the KVK in addressing farmers issues through providing advisory services and introducing innovative technology. Besides, regular  field visits by the scientists to farmers field also being conducted on request which gained the confidence among the farmers. In addition, KVK is also conducting frontline demonstrations on proven technologies in farmers field to enable the farming community to adopt and also organizing on-campus and off-campus training programs to farm men and women and rural youths on various subject regularly.  Apart from this, collaborative projects on cutting edge technology are being implemented  as funded by Department of Agriculture, Government of Karnataka and other agencies.
