Agrowan awards presented
When MD of Sakal Media Group Abhijit Pawar had announced his decision to launch a newspaper especially for farmers, many had raised doubts. But we had faith in farmers’ thirst for knowledge. The popular myth that farmers don’t read was proved wrong considering the response generated from farmers. By reading the success stories, thousands of farmers are now putting new experiments in practice. Agrowan Award will inspire many farmers in the future.
