Training

On an average Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Raigad conducts 8-10 need-based training programs in a year for farmers, farm women, rural youth, and extension personnel. The Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Raigad has purchased more than 100 educational audio-visual aids to make the training activities more effective. More emphasis is given on long-duration practical, 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, goat, nursery, dairy & sericulture units.

Efforts are made to empower the women technically, as they play a very vital role in agricultural operations. Farmer’s groups may approach the Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Raigad for customized training.
