The proceeding was taken by the Chairman after a brief self introduction by the participants. The Chairman released four technology bulletins in Odiya for the benefits of the farmers of the district. A report consisting of the activities and achievements of KVK during 2013-14 was circulated among the members to facilitate effective discussion. The activities namely trainings, OFTs, FLDs etc., taken up during 2013-14 and proposed activities for 2014-15 in the area of agronomy, horticulture, soil science and plant protection were presented by the concerned Subject Matter Specialists of the KVK.

Although the KVK had no SMS (Veterinary Science) but some activities were done during 2013-14, which was appreciated by the Head, Regional Centre, CARI, Bhubaneswar. Some shortfalls in action taken were observed in the area of Agriculture Extension which was attributed to the vacancy of SMS (Agriculture Extension).
