On July 5, 2024, Krishi Jagran hosted the 'MFOI Samridh Kisan Utsav' at Bainganga Palace, Seoni, Madhya Pradesh. Sponsored by Mahindra Tractors, the event focused on the theme 'Maximizing Farmers' Income for a Prosperous Bharat.' The event was powered by Dhanuka Agritech, supported by STIHL, with ICAR participating as the esteemed knowledge partner. The Department of Agriculture- Seoni and Krishi Vigyan Kendra- Seoni, also provided crucial support. Farmers gain valuable insights into various innovative farming solutions and the latest agricultural equipment.

The day commenced with participant registration. Dr. Shekhar Singh Baghel (Senior Scientist & Head KVK, Seoni), Asha Upvanshi, JK Singh (DGM Dhanuka Agritech), Pradyumna Tripathi (Regional Manager, Mahindra Tractors), Dr. Nikhil Kumar Singh, Dr. KK Deshmukh (KVK, Seoni), Dr. NK Singh (KVK, Seoni), Morish Nath (DDA, Seoni) and Engr. Kumar (Seoni) attended the event. Experts shared valuable insights on boosting farm income and celebrated the progressive farmers of the region.

Dr. Shekhar Singh Baghel, Head and Senior Scientist at Krishi Vigyan Kendra in Seoni, highlighted that most farmers focus more on their crops than on the soil, leading to various issues. He mentioned that while some farmers use the Soil Health Card to get their soil tested, they often fail to collect the soil test reports, mistakenly believing the cards will be delivered to them. Dr. Baghel emphasized the need for farmers to be more proactive and aware of soil health.

Pradyumna Tripathi, Regional Manager at Mahindra Tractors, remarked, "What is this MFOI and why was it started? Do you know about it?" He explained, "The image of farmers in India has always been poor. To change this, Krishi Jagran and Mahindra Tractors have collaborated to create the 'Millionaire Farmer of India' award show, aimed at honoring and redefining the identity of farmers in the agricultural sector."

He added that farmers in India are becoming increasingly progressive, and it is now their turn to shine. "Farmers dream of their success at night and wake up in the morning thinking about how to achieve it. We are committed to helping them fulfill these dreams." During the event, Tripathi showcased the latest Mahindra tractors and presented a video highlighting the company's continuous efforts to support farmers.
