The Malayalam edition of Krishi Jagran was launched on September 25, 2016. Krishi Jagran has been able to make a significant contribution to the agriculture of Kerala in a short span of time. Krishi Jagran has already started a significant change in the field of agriculture by setting up Kisan Clubs and organizing seminars along with imparting reading experience to the farmers of Kerala. The Krishi Jagran portal was started after realizing the difficulty of sharing farm information only through magazines. Millions of farmers who love agriculture are the regular visitors of our portal today. Krishi Jagran has been influential on all social media including Facebook, WhatsApp and YouTube etc. Our innovative programs such as Farmer the Brand and Farmer First become famous among farmers in Kerala. 'Farmer the Brand' is an event where farmers bring their brand products to the mainstream of society.

Farmer First is an event that has become the voice of farmers. The objectives of this program are to bring the problems of the farmers to the notice of the authorities and to find solutions to their problems.
