The aim of extension education is the transfer of technology to potential farmers and farm women regarding agriculture, animal husbandry, home science and other allied areas mainly through the field functionaries of departments of Agriculture, Horticulture, Animal Husbandry and Women and Child Development, Govt. of Haryana. Its approach is educational in nature and emphasis is on whole farm and family development.

Improved technology is one of the most important input in the present day society for the upliftment of farmers and farm families. Unless latest technology is carried out to the doorsteps of the farmers and farm-women, there is no possibility for raising the status of rural families.

They play a catalytic role to disseminate useful and latest technology about crops, livestock care and management, child care and family resource management through demonstrations, need based vocational trainings, gyan diwas, campaigns, seminars, etc. In order to provide best services to the rural community of Rewari district, the scientists of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bawal are actively involved in:
