Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh has launched an online portal designed to monitor functioning of nearly 645 Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs), known as farm-science centres, spread across the country. The KVKs, which have a mandate to assess agri-technology and demonstrate to farmers application and capacity development, are being set up in rural districts. Each KVK has direct interface with at least 1,000 farmers.
The KVK portal will provide information related to all schemes, market development and weather updates, besides advisory to farmers. This portal will also facilitate online monitoring of KVKs. The portal will have a provision for online monitoring of KVKs, which includes submission of monthly reports. It will also have information on different services being provided by different KVKs, weather and market updates, forthcoming programmes, besides question and answer facility for farmers. The agriculture details of the district will be made available on the portal.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the portal which has been launched by the government for monitoring of farm centres?
2. Name the person who has launched the KVK portal for monitoring of farm centres?
