There are three Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs) which are under the Administrative control of ICAR, Nagaland Centre.
1) KVK Dimapur Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs), the innovative science based institutions, were established mainly to impart vocational training to the farmers and field level extension workers. The training programmes are designed to impart the latest knowledge to the farmers through work experience by applying the principles of ‘Teaching by Doing’ and ‘Learning by Doing’. The prime goal of the KVK is to impart training as per the needs and requirements in agriculture and allied enterprises to all the farmers, farm women and farm youths including school drop-outs in the rural area. The effectiveness of the KVK was further enhanced by adding the activities related to on-farm testing and Front-Line Demonstration on major agricultural technologies in order to make the training of farmers location specific, need based and resource-oriented.
2) KVK Wokha The concept of vocational training in agriculture through Krishi Vigyan Kendras grew substantially as the farmers needed not only knowledge and understanding but also progressively more and more skills in various agricultural operations. The Mohan Singh Mehta Committee (1974) laid down the following concept of KVK. Firstly, the Kendra will impart learning through work experience and hence it does not necessarily require as a precondition of the ability to read and write. Secondly, the Kendra will impart training only to the extension workers who are already employed or to practicing farmers. In other words, the kendras will cater to the needs of those who are already employed or those who wish to be self-employed. Thirdly, there will be no uniform syllabus for a Kendra. The syllabus and programme of each Kendra will be tailored according to the felt needs, natural resources and the potentials for agricultural growth in that area. The Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Wokha was established in the month of October, 2006. It is situated approximately 11 kms from the main town towards Kohima 3) KVK Longleng Longleng District, the Home of the Phom Nagas, is the tenth district of Nagaland, formed as a result of bifurcation of Tuensang District.
