WELCOME TO REGIONAL FODDER STATION
The Regional Station for Forage Production & Demonstration (RSFPD) is now renamed as Regional Fodder Station (RFS).
This station is one among the seven Regional Station established during 1973 by the Government of India, Ministry of Agriculture, Department of Animal Husbandry Dairying and Fisheries to cater the needs of the farmers in the States/Union Territories of Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry and Andaman & Nicobar Islands in respect of fodder development work.
The main idea behind the establishment of such Regional Stations in different agro-climatic regions of India is to have close link with Research Institutions/Universities and to improve quality of extension work being carried out in the States based on the findings of the Universities/Institutions. Thus, the Station is an important media to bring out the latest research findings on fodder production at the door of the actual beneficiaries. Moreover, local problems being encountered are passed to Research Institutions/Universities for further investigation.
