ZPD, Zone-VI organized a training on “vKVK and KVK Net” of 25-KVKs of Zone-VI at Maharana Pratap University of Agriculture and Technology, Udaipur in collaboration with IIT Kanpur. Dr YV Singh, ZPD, Zone-VI in his inaugural address pointed out that after successful implementation of Kisan Mobile Advisory the farmers got timely SMS about different packages of practice on crop and livestock husbandry. However, the new concept of vKVK and KVK Net has its own importance and there is an urgent need to implement in all the KVKs. He further added that voice-KVK will be more useful and helpful in mobile agro-advisory to the farmers, as this technology helps in delivering the message instantly to all the registered farmers under respective KVK. The remaining KVKs of Zone-VI would be covered under vKVK in the second phase of this training under the technical guidance of IIT Kanpur.
Dr Sunil Intodia (representative of DEE) proposed vote of thanks.
