More than 50% of population in India depends on Agriculture. And that is why agriculture has a prominent place here. Moreover, when we talk about ‘Agriculture’, how can we forget ‘Krishi Jagran’. Yes friends, Krishi Jagran is a media organization that has been working for the farmers for last 25 years.

The motive of Krishi Jagran is to help the farmers with latest farming techniques, government schemes and many other things. The organization is always in touch with the farmers through many new programs along with giving new information to the farmers every day.  

Now let’s know about the man behind this globally recognized organization -M.C Dominic, Editor-in-chief of Krishi Jagran and Agricultural World. It is the result of his hard work that today Krishi Jagran is known by people all over the world.

However, this was not the end of his dreams, he wanted to do lot more for the farmers. So finally, he came up with the idea of FTB-Organic - a platform through which farmers can make their products accessible to the common people across the globe. For many years he had observed that the farmers around him is working hard putting their time and effort into farming but are not getting the appreciation or credit for their hard work. Initially, he came up with an idea of Farmer the Brand, where the farmers could express themselves. However, this helped the farmers to sell their product only now and then. He wanted to give farmers, the platform where they can sell their product regularly. Hence, the E-Commerce Platform of FTB-Organic is launched.
