ADT’s KVK’s Silver Jubilee Celebration empowering farmers with innovative farming techniques at ease.
The dream of establishment of Agricultural Development Trust, Shardanagar, Baramativisualized by renowned social reformers Hon. Sharadchandra Pawar and his elder brother Late Padmashree Dr. D. G. Alias Appasaheb Pawar, with the objective to serve the downtrodden masses with sustained agricultural and educational development among them. ADT, Baramati with its wide range of dedicated activities in the field of agriculture and education always gave yeoman services to the farming community& rural women while celebrating the Silver Jubilee of KVK Baramati on this August 2017.
Since establishment in 1992, KVK Baramati has done a tremendous work for the sustainable development of Agriculture. As, this is the drought prone area, KVK pointed out the importance of Agri-Allied enterprises like dairy, poultry, sheep & goat, sericulture & processing, which can give additional income to the farming community. On the 110 acre land of the host organization all the agricultural, horticultural & allied enterprises are being demonstrated for the concept of ‘Seeing is believing’. The farmers, farm women & rural youth are trained for the improved agricultural technologies & entrepreneurship development. Also, KVK has established the Farmers Clubs & the Farmers Producer Organizations to develop better marketing for the branded commodities of these groups.
Due to the outstanding efforts & impact on the farming community, KVK has been awarded with Zonal, National & International awards. This is only due to the whole hearted & dedicated working of the concerned persons.
Two consecutive editions of “Krushik- Live Demos & Agri Expo” benefitted enthusiastic farming community with various technologies available in the field of agriculture making them user friendly. Various foreigner dignitaries in presenceof ourHon’ble Ministers of Maharashtra inaugurated the second edition where 2 Lakh + farmers across various states visited overwhelmingly and went satisfactorily with fulfilled desires and doubts of agriculture. Coming to the expectations and vision behind Krushik I would say Krushik- India’s one of the biggest Live Demo and Agri Expo will consider farmers and exhibitors equally to justify their basic and minute needs along with commercial evaluation of agricultural technologies.
This time we intend to introduce our farming families with more international technologies with an ease of experiencing, understanding and utilizing at our doorstep. Rather than to create any commercial value we prefer the technical literacy to farmer families, mainly to women who directly work hard in their farms. We promise to give our best to serve farmer families and participants of the Krushik-2018 to satisfy them with the whole of their expectations in this Silver Jubilee Year Celebration.
