Audio visual aid has its own impact in technology transmission both to literate and illiterate people. For effective communication audio visual tools are most useful. We do video documentary films on agriculture and allied activities. Getting the technology transferred to farmer’s mind is very easier through these video films.With this concept we have made extension department’s job easier by video documentary films. Seasonal agricultural practices are recorded regularly and used for making complete video film on particular technology. These video films convey the message very effectively and reach the ultimate user of the technology.
We publish a bimonthly magazine “PASHU SIRI” dedicated to Animal husbandry, Dairying and fishery sector to make farmers aware of new technologies and advanced practices. 5000 Copies per every two months are circulated to farmers, vet doctors, extension staff of different departments. Out of which 2000 copies are circulated to Milk cooperative societies located in Bangalore Urban, Rural, & Ramanagar district through Bangalore milk union.
