Convergence Between Agricultural Research and Extension.
Improvement in farm productivity and livelihood security of farmers is possible with the popularisation and use of need based locally adaptable technologies. This can be facilitated to a great extent through a demand driven technology development and its transfer to farmers in an effective way with a focus on ensuring convergence of efforts at different levels for rendering an integrated service delivery to the farmers. In particular, the linkages between National Agriculture Research System (NARS) and extension machinery at cutting edge level need to be strengthened. While the Agricultural Technology Management Agency (ATMA) has been promoted at district level with an idea to provide a platform for integrated extension delivery involving all the stakeholders, the Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs) operating at the same level act as an outreach arm of NARS facilitating validation and adoption of new technologies through frontline demonstrations, training & awareness programmes and other initiatives.
