Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs) are the district level Farm Science Centres, established by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) for speedy transfer of technology to the farmers’ fields.  The KVKs aim at increasing the productivity on a sustainable basis and creating opportunities for greater economic activities in agriculture and allied sectors.  The KVKs identify the technological needs of the farming community and endeavor to meet these needs through multifarious activities like technology assessment and refinement,  organization of training programmes, demonstrations, , agricultural exhibitions, fields days, campaigns, publication of simple technical literature in local language etc.

Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) Bajaura was established in 1985, under the administrative control of the Himachal Pradesh Krishi Vishvavidyalaya, Palampur and is fully funded by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), New Delhi. The centre is situated at Bajaura (1090 m a m s l ) on Chandigarh-Manali highway (NH-21) which is 18 Km ahead of Kullu. The Kullu-Manali airport is about 6 KM from the centre. Harnessing of locally available resources, increasing yield of crops through scientific niche based techniques inculcating entrepreneurship among the rural youth for self employment and paving possibility of new avenues for the farmers to enhance their socio-economic status remains the main aim of this Kendra. This is multipurpose research, training, demonstration and service centre on agriculture, horticulture, animal husbandry, agro-forestry, organic farming and home science.
