Welcome to Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Phek

Krishi Vigyan Kendra (Farm Science Center) is a noble concept developed by Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) as primary links for the farmers to know about the agricultural technologies being generated by National Agricultural Research System (NARS).
