Chamarajanagar District is endowed with a unique agricultural situation with diversified cropping pattern.
The rural population constitutes 86% of total population of the district. Agriculture is the main occupation.
The major area is under rainfed agriculture which is subjected to vagaries of mansoon. Cereals, Oil Seeds,
pulse crop vegetables and plantation crops are grown by the farmers. Important commercial crops like Cotton
Sugarcane, Turmeric and Tobacco are also grown. In addition farmers practice subsidiary enterprise like Sericulture,
Dairying, Poultry Farming and Fish culture. The District having diversified enterprises is denied/deprived of new Technology.
The existing developmental departments working in the district are not able to meet the technical demands of the farmers in
respect of these enterprises. Though the improved technologies in the agriculture and allied field are available, farmers
are not able to adopt them in their field due to ignorance backwardness and isolation from the research stations situated in Mysore and
Mandya Districts. If these technologies are effectively transferred to farmers certainly they will adopt in their fields.
Hence there is a strong need for a nodal transfer of Technology Institution like KVK (Krishi Vigyan Kendra) in the District.
