Front Line Demonstration
The FLDs are regularly organised in farmers holdings in order to upscale the proven agro technologies. Some of the FLDs conducted by the KVK, Sandhiyur during the past few years gave significant impact in improving the adoption rate by the farmers. Few such technologies are System of Rice Intensification (SRI), drum seeding, Leaf Colour Chart (LCC), quality seed production, introduction of alternate crops viz, Sunflower, Maize, Precision farming technologies in vegetables, flowers, etc.,
