The Vidya Bhawan Krishi Vigyan Kendra (VBKVK) was established in 1984 by signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Vidya Bhawan Society and Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR).
KVKs (Farm Science Centres) aim to achieve "fine tuning of agriculture technologies, training of farmers, rural youth, extension personnel and execution of programmes of national importance".
The VBKVK is presently conducting trainings in agriculture and allied activities. It also aims to create models of sustainable technology to be used at village level. These models can then be replicated by local organizations for training of farming community and extension personals.
The institutional design of KVKs across India was formulated under the Chairmanship of Dr. Mohan Sinha Mehta, founder of Vidya Bhawan, in 1973.
VBKVK is located in the Badgaon Block of Udaipur district in south-west Rajasthan and is in the midst of the Aravali mountain ranges. The geographical boundaries of the district extend from 23.45” to 24.8” North Latitudes and from 73.9” to 74.35” East Longitudes. Udaipur district has an estimated population of 26.33 million, 55% of which are tribal. Of the eleven blocks in the district, eight are composed largely of tribal communities. These communities depend primarily on agriculture and animal husbandry for their livelihoods, supplemented by income from seasonal employment in nearby towns, mining areas and commercially intensive agricultural areas in the neighbouring state. The geographical area of the district is 13419 sq. km. which is 3.65% of the state area. The terrain is predominantly hilly and undulating. The north-eastern part is plain where as south western part is mainly hilly. Nearly 42% of this area is unfit for agriculture. The region, which comes under Agro-climatic Zone IV-A (Sub-Humid South Plain and Aravali Hill Zone) is characterized by moderate rainfall and temperature variation between 0ºC - 25ºC in winters to 26ºC - 50ºC in summers.
