KISAN FORUM, has been active in the realm of Agricultural extension for the past 20 years. Our objective is to keep farmers in tune with the latest technologies and to harness emerging opportunities in transforming their lives. As part of our efforts, we have worked on several large-scale projects towards this aim.
Some of these are:
KISAN : India's Largest Agri Show
We first organized the Kisan show 20 years ago, with the goal of creating a unified platform for farmers across India. An annual event, this show has been running successfully till date, and over a hundred thousand farmers and agri-related professionals from across India visit us every year, with the sole intention of discovering 'what's next'!
We operate a small call center popularly known as 'KISAN samvaad', and have compiled large volume of data on the Indian farming community. (500,000+) Currently, this database helps us update farmers by broadcasting relevant and timely messages via SMS and email. Other possible applications and services are also being explored, utilizing the unfolding potential of new media.
KISAN means farmer and Samvaad means dialogue in most Indian languages.
KISAN.com : Website for Farming Community
This is our initiative which is envisioned as a platform for sharing knowledge and information amongst the Indian farming community, sans geographic limitations.
The same online platform will be presented to the ever-increasing number of our farmers connecting to Internet on their mobile and tablets. This media will help initiate more interaction and increased contribution.
