Farming is said to bethe primary occupation in India which is highly dependent on agriculture. But still, it is considered as the most underestimated occupation. For any country, Agriculture is its backbone. Not only in words, but in reality. But another harsh reality is that despite their huge contribution to the economy, farmers are often neglected and hardly rewarded with what they deserve. Hence, it's time to do something for the Annadatta (farmers).  And farmers will also have to do something for himself…!!

Moreover, government has recently announced agricultural reform and introduced 'Farm Bill 2020' which has invited intensifying protest against the government while few considered it as historic one. Amid this hue and cry, Krishi Jagran has been highlighting all the farmer's problem and working since the past 25 years for the upliftment of farmer’s section.

Starting from what problems are faced by farmers and what we can do for them. More than that, we need to analyze the real issues faced by the farmers and how we can help them solve those problems.

According to a survey, it was found that the main problem that most of the farmers face is the proper marketing of their produce. If this issue is solved, half of the problems will be solved automatically.

This is the issue that rural Indian farmers are still facing. Many farmers are not able to find the proper source, location for agricultural marketing. And they need to sell their crops at lower rates because of this. And fixer middlemen earn all the profit and farmers suffer. The reason for this is the absence of an organized marketing structure. To save farmers all this, Government came with regulated markets. These markets use the system of competitive buying and ensure that farmers are not subjected to exploitation and receive lucrative prices for their goods. But still, this issue needs to be worked upon more.

Then what's the Answer?

Analysing these issues, Krishi Jagran has started a program #FTB "Farmer the Brand" to give a platform to the farmers to market and showcase their products without depending on the middlemen. After the grand success of first 'FTB Mahotsav', Krishi Jagran is inviting you to participate in the 2nd 'FTB Mahotsav'.

10 well known farmers of India participated and addressed more than thousand others in first Mahotsav. They inspired other farmers by guiding and teaching as to how to think out of the box and grow with farming profession.
