We are proud to announce that Krishi Jagran has completed 25 golden years in the industry and has become the voice of Farmers all over India. On this occasion, MC Dominic, Editor in Chief of Krishi Jagran & Agriculture World visions to empower the farmers of our country by giving them a platform to document and report their problems, concerns and successes through Farmer – the Journalist initiative.

Gone are the days when the “Farmer of India” was considered helpless, uneducated and unempowered. At Krishi Jagran, we have seen the splendid growth of Indian farmers through the journey of 25 years & have come across huge number of farmers who broke all barriers and achieved heights through their innovation, awareness and progressiveness. There are farmers who want to come forward to help and inspire others.

Krishi Jagran’s Farmer – the Journalist strives to challenge the typical image of Indian farmers in the urban minds, and it plans to do so by letting the farmers speak for themselves on its platform. This is the core idea of Farmer – the Journalist: the story involves the farmer and shall be told by the farmer. They shall not be mute bearers of loss, they shall be Journalists, documenting theirs problems and successes alike.

Before, we have also given platform to farmers who have branded their products locally in the agricultural sector so that they could tell their success story to the community. This program, Farmer – the Brand, was launched in 2020 and has since then been an important space for farmers across the country. We have also provided farmers a platform to sell their branded local products online. Furthermore, another one of our initiatives, Farmer First Program, ensures that they have the freedom to bravely speak about the difficulties they have been facing.

We take immense pride in announcing that we are now introducing Farmer – the Journalist to celebrate 25 successful years of being an important voice in the agricultural sector on 5th September, 2021. It envisages farmers raising their own voices and exploring journalistic experiences. Our mission, as always, is to make the world aware about every aspect of agriculture by farmers based in every nook and corner of India.
