These Centres are created by the Indian Council for Agricultural Research. The first Krishi Vigyan Kendra was established in 1974. These centres provide different types of farm support at district level. Also, they implement on-farm testing to assess agricultural technologies.

The Krishi Vigyan Mela was launched to make agriculture a profitable venture. It is a fair that aims to call talents in agriculture. Several discussions at the fair were conducted to ensure superior seeds are supplied to farmers at reasonable rates.
