The Krishi Vigyan Kendra are assessing the technological needs of the district and revalidating the technology for adoption. Systematic work through field demonstrations, on and off campus training to extension workers and vocational trainings for farm youths and farm women have been regular activities of the KVKs, thus minimizing the technological gap between production achieved of various crops by the farming community and production potential of the technologies. Field days and Kisan Melas were also organized in all the seasons. The State has the highest population of tribal (23.68%) among the different Sates of the country (8.01%). The tribal farmers responded well to technical inputs of JNKVV in terms of natural resource management, use of improved varieties of maize, cotton and rice, soybean, castor and vegetables in their cropping systems. The Krishi Vigyan Kendra Dindori, Mandla, Betul, Chhindwara, Shahdol and Umaria have done commendable efforts for socio-economic upliftment of tribes. Similarly, Gonds and Baigas of Eastern tribal regions of the State have been benefited by extension efforts of Krishi Vigyan Kendras of Sidhi, Shahdol, Umaria, Katni and Seoni. Use of improved strains of minor millets and their substitutions by early varieties of urid, niger and paddy made definite impact on the productivity and socio-economic status of the farmers.
