Why did the FSL-India team visit the Krushi mela?

KVK (Krushi Vigyana Kendra- Bramhavara) is one of the agriculture research centres authorised by the Government of India, which is working for the farmers’ development by giving training on forestry, horticulture, fishery, poultry, honeybee, floriculture, etc.

FSL-India has a good rapport with KVK, because we have been regularly inviting KVK staff to CEL, to give trainings on farming to the local community and farmers.
