JNKVV Jawaharlal Nehru Krishi Vishwavidyalaya About Us

Government of India with the assistance of the State Government established the biggest multi campus university at Jabalpur, in the heart of India, named after the architect of modern India, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru based on the recommendations of Radhakrishnan commission ( 1949 ) on the concept of establishment of Agricultural University. An approach was envisaged to narrow down the gap between the experts and farmers through Joint Indo – American Team on Agricultural Research and Education in 1954 – 55 and 1959 – 60 on the patterns of Land Grant Colleges of USA. On October 2, 1964, Jawaharlal Nehru Krishi Vishwa Vidyalaya ( JNKVV ) was inaugurated by the then Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Smt. Indira Gandhi.

The Central Administrative Offices of the JNKVV University are located about 7 km North of Jabalpur town on the National Highway No. 7. Under an act of Madhya Pradesh Legislature passed in 1963, six Government Colleges of Agriculture and two Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry and 26 Research Stations formed the University.

The area under the JNKVV jurisdiction contains alluvial, deep black, medium black, shallow and light black, mixed red and black, mixed red and yellow and skeletal or gravelly soil. It is low to medium in available nitrogen and phosphorus, and medium to high in available potassium.
