          2.      Month and Year of Inception  : October - 2005
2. Mandate and Activities :
The mandate of KVK is Technology Assessment and Demonstration for its Application and Capacity Development.
To implement the mandate effectively, the following activities are envisaged for each KVK
(1)    Testing and demonstration of agricultural technology in farmer’ fields for wider adoption.
(2)    Capacity development through training and skilling of farmers, farm women, youth and extension personnel.
(3)    Provide diagnostics, farm advisories and large scale awareness on varied subjects of interest to farmers.
(4)    Produce quality technological products (seeds, planting materials etc.) and make it available to the farmers.
(5)    Identify, validate and promote local and indigenous farm innovations.
(6)    Converge with ongoing schemes and programmes related to different departments and organizations.
       In addition, KVKs produce quality technological products (seed, planting material, bio-agents, livestock) and make it available to farmers, organize frontline extension activities, identify and document selected farm innovations and converge with ongoing schemes and programs within the mandate of KVK.
3. District Profile:
       The district Surendranagar mainly falls in north Saurashtra agro-climatic zone. The district located in India at 22.0° to 23.45° North latitude and 69.45° to 72.15° East longitude. Surendranagar district is bounded in north by Gulf of Kutch and Mehasana district, in the south by Bhavnagar and part of Ahmedabad district, on the east by part of Ahmedabad and west by Rajkot district. The average annual rainfall is 400 mm. The average temperature of the district ranges with 41°C maximum to 11°C minimum.  The soil is mostly medium black, shallow to moderately deep and calcareous in nature, therefore cotton is the major crop of the district.

The pH of the soil is alkaline and underground water is non saline in nature.
      The district covers 10.48 lakh ha geographical area out of which 6.90 lakh ha under cultivation, of which only 0.62 lakh ha is irrigated. Major area comes under rainfed farming. The main sources of irrigation are wells, tube wells, ponds and canals. The major crops of this region are cotton, groundnut, castor, sesame & pearl millet and others are sorghum, wheat, chick pea, groundnut, mustard, cumin, green gram, black gram, onion, garlic and vegetables. The fruit orchard area is very less.
