Abstract

An exploratory study was conducted to review the secondary extension activities conducted by fisheries discipline under Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK), South Tripura. Primary objective of a Krishi Vigyan Kendra is to frontline extension through assessment or refinement of technology (On Farm Trials, OFTs), Frontline Demonstrations (FLDs) and conducting training programmes for farmers, rural youths, and extension personnel. Conducting other extension activities which include a wide range of extension events is another mandated activity of KVK. This paper attempted to review the performance conducted in terms of other extension activities than OFT, FLD and Training in fisheries by KVK South Tripura from 2007-08 to 2019-20. The Study identified three categories of extension activities viz., individual, group and mass communication-based events and made the trend analysis of a number of extension activities carried out under each category. It was observed that the number of most of the activities were gradually increased over the years from 2007-08 to 2019-20. Time series pattern didn’t show a similar trend for different types of extension activities over the last 13 years. Few activities were conducted in substantial numbers, whereas a number of activities for few extension events required to be explored for possibilities. There is a lot of scope and potential usefulness for conducting such events under other extension activities on fisheries at KVK, South Tripura.
