Welcome to JNKVV. Jabalpur
Located in the heart of India, named after the architect of modern India, Pt. Jawaharlal
Nehru, a multi-campus University, Jawaharlal Nehru Krishi Vishwa Vidyalaya (JNKVV)
was inaugurated by the then Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Smt.
Indira Gandhi on October 2, 1964.
Jawaharlal Nehru Krishi Vishwavidyalaya (JNKVV), Jabalpur was established in 1964,
as the biggest multi-campus university, with an approach to narrow down the gap
between the experts and farmers, through Joint Indo-American Team on Agricultural
Research and Education in 1954-55 and 1959-60 on the patterns of Land Grant Colleges
of USA. In subsequent years, the University had to part with its area of jurisdiction
due to creation of sister universities- Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya (IGKV)
at Raipur in 1987, Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia Krishi Vishwa Vidyalaya, Gwalior in
2008 and Nanaji Deshmukh Pashu Chikitsa Vigyan Vishwa Vidyalaya, Jabalpur in 2009.
The Central Administrative Office of the University is located about 7 km North
of Jabalpur town on National Highway No. 7. At present, JNKVV encompasses five Colleges
of Agriculture (Jabalpur, Rewa, Tikamgarh, Ganjbasoda and Waraseoni); one College
of Agricultural Engineering (Jabalpur); four Zonal Agricultural Research Stations
(ZARS) (Jabalpur, Powarkheda, Tikamgarh and Chhindwara); four Regional Agricultural
Research Stations (Rewa, Sagar, Dindori and Waraseoni); four Agricultural Research
Stations (ARS) (Naugaon, Garhakota, Sausar and Tendini) and twenty Krishi Vigyan
Kendras (KVK) representing six agro-climatic zones spread over 25 districts. JNKVV
has produced competent human resource for managing the activities of agriculture
and allied sectors, and the need based research and its rapid dissemination has
led to several improved technologies, which have played important role for increased
production and productivity of crops on sustainable basis, as reflected in 18.9
% growth rate in total agricultural food grain production during the year 2011-12
and 16.4 % during the year 2012-13 of the state of Madhya Pradesh.. The State ranks
first in production of pulses, second in production of oilseeds and third in production
of cereals at national level. The state’s contribution to the national food basket
is about 11.2% (2012-13).
The State received “Krishi Karman Award” at national level for two consecutive years,
i.e. for the years 2011-12 and 2012-13. The area covered by the University is not
only large but also diversified. Since its establishment the university has made
laudable progress and has come to the expectations of the people of the state by
greatly benefiting the farming community.
