KISAN FORUM, has been active in the realm of Agricultural extension for the past 24 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 24 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 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.
Pashudhan Indian Livestock Industry Fair
Pashudhan fair is envisioned with an intention to bring together the important stakeholders on a
common platform. The fair will present new technologies, innovations and emerging opportunities
and set the agenda for a dynamic Indian livestock sector. It will be the first of it kind fair in India
focused exclusively on Animal Husbandry sector.
KISAN carries out a visitor reach out project called Sampark each year. Under this project,
a team of KISAN representatives travel across Maharashtra and the neighboring states to meet
the agri-input dealers, traders and farmers. The idea behind Sampark is to have a database
of agri professionals even from the remotest part of our country.
They are also informed about Kisan expo and are provided free passes to attend.
