I am regular viewer of your program.I am happy with your efforts of nurturing the ancient art of agriculture with the new technology.The programme is duly essential for the younger generation to know that what pain and hardship our dear farmers take to feed
I was watching the kissan deepam program. The kissan deepam program is very good. I love Kerala. I am working in B lore. But i love to come back to Kerala. My feeling towards Kerala is that its a place of goodness and prosperity.

||I AM LAWYER FROM LONDON,UK. I LIKE YOUR WEBSITE TOO MUCH. SOME SUGGESTION FOR U. FIRST I SALUTE U I SEE KISAN VIDEO ON WWW.YOUTUBE.COM VERY NICE.
1) TRANSLATE YOUR WEBSITE IN ALL INDIAN LANGUAGES SO ALL MALE AND FEMALE OF INDIA GET BENEFIT FROM IT.
2) TRANSLATE KISSAN KERALA PROGRAMME IN ALL INDIAN LANGUAGE SO WE GUJARATI PEOPLE UNDERSTAND IT IN GUJARATI.
INDIA IS LAND OF HINDUISM....SIKHISM........JAINISM.....BUDDHISM ALL = HINDUISM

Your KISSAN-Kerala Project and the online services are unique and exemplary. The answered query module is highly informative.
I think it is proper to bring the following points I observed, to your attention.
1. While typing a question or feedback, the special characters like ampersand, asterisk, hash sign, dollar sign, percentage, parenthesis etc are not accepted. The whole text disappears when it encounters a special
character with an error message ? undefined.
2. The answered query module is growing unnecessarily large due to repeated answers. Several people are asking same or similar questions. You answer each question and post it in the answered query module. This causes repetition
and monotony to readers. You can either direct the requestor to a previous answer by token number or send the answer by e-mail without adding to the module.
One of the nice things about your program is that users can access all the previous questions and answers on any subject by KEYWORD. For example the keyword -mushroom- will bring all the question and answers containing
the word -mushroom- and the keyword -rubber- will bring all Q and A containing the word -rubber-. Users can clear most of their doubts and find information they need without bothering you. Many of the users are unaware of this wonderful feature and they prefer asking you. If you add a line or two to this effect in the instructions part of the ?Post Question- module, many of the repeated questions can be avoided and you will receive only new questions.
3. In numerous cases you refer the requestors to the appropriate agencies. This referral has some disadvantages 1. The answer they receive is confined to themselves. The information they receive may be useful to other farmers as well. 2. Those agencies will equally be over-loaded with repeated questions. 3. Your databank will not grow. 4. The golden rule for a service unit is ?Don?t refer the people,
refer the case?. Referral service will defeat the purpose of your existence. Therefore, instead of referring each individual, you can refer the more frequent and commonly
asked questions directly to the appropriate authority once, get the answer, and post it in the module. This will be readable to everyone . Repetition can also be avoided.
4. I have a feeling that a lot of encouragement is given to the cultivation of Jatropha ? the diesel plant, vanilla, aloe vera, safed musli, pathimugam etc.
However I don?t think there is proper infra-structure for transportation, sale, processing or preservation of any of the above produce or the farmers can make a profit out of their new ventures. Several decades ago, a leading chocolate company in Bombay played a trick on the farmers of Kerala. They found that the soil and climate of Kerala
are ideal for cocoa cultivation. They encouraged the farmers to cultivate cocoa and offered an excellent price. Some farmers including my father, cut down the rubber trees and planted cocoa. For the first year and second year of yield, the farmers made good profit. When the company got enough stock of their raw materials they slashed the price. Gradually, there came a time, when there was no buyers,
no value and no use. Unlike coffee or cashew nuts, cocoa seeds cannot be processed at home. The pods started rotting under the trees, infested with flies, worms, rodents, bats and a new comer called marappatti which after eating the chocolate enriched fruits stole the farmer?s chicken. The precious farm land became wasteland.
Will the growers of these fancy crops meet the same fate?
Few years ago during my visit to Kerala I noticed extensive inter-crop cultivation of pineapple in rubber plantations. The following year I saw mountains of pineapples
rotting on the road-side sometimes abandoned or unattended. There is no wholesale outlet, no retail buyers, no processing or preserving techniques. I don?t know how many
farmers are making a living out of vanilla cultivation or how many motors are running on jatropha. In my personal view, there is no substitute for Kerala?s traditional crops like rubber, coconut, arecanut, pepper, tapioca, yams, pulses, rice, vegetables, betel leaf, timber etc. Instead of wasting time on fancy crops like jatropha, vanilla and aloe, if they concentrate on mushroom cultivation and flood the Kerala market with different kinds of mushrooms, it would be beneficial for health especially for diabetic patients. If the farmers have land to waste, why can?t they cultivate tapioca? I paid Rs. 15 for 1 Kg!

Realy this project is good and informative.The online Question and answering also very good.I am presently working in Dubai now I am on my annual leave.Actually I like Agriculture.Every friday Iam watching Krishi Deepam,this program is good.

||If anyone is interested in marine fish farming projects they shall contact for more details.
||A really helpful project for us, who are on the initial phase of agriculture and cultivation. Thanking all the members behind it and wishing all the best for its future projects.
Expecting more helpful topics in the future.
||Most of the Farmers are illiterates in villages can you please give an awareness campaign for them and put an assist in Nearest Krishibhavan office. So farmers can push there queries into help line.
Most of the farmers are not aware about the recent subsidies provided by the government and what kind of things they are providing like information you can put as stroller message.
My last token no is 8591.Thank you for answer. As you said I have contacted to Krishi Vigyan Kendra at Baramati, Pune.But I am not satisfied, they have no information about whole sale market. is in India any Animal cutting units like devnar in Mumbai? If not where is its market?
||Hi People behind Krishidheepam,
This is the first time writing to a TV channel. I felt Krishidheepam is one of the most interesting programs and this is the only program I?m watching in Malayalam channels. You guys are showing something real. This is really revealing the beauty of farming and it will really inspire a farmer. This is a small suggestion I felt the sound tracks are not justifying your picture.
I really respect your effort to make Krishidheepam happening every week.
||Your website is very good and very usefull for agriculter and livelihood development. it was very good help for my studiees. I like to study more about mushroom cultivation. can you provide me more information about mushroom cultivation.
wish you all the best.
||I AM VERY MUCH OBLIGED TO KISSAN KERALA KRISHIDEEPAM, AND I WATCH THE WEEKLY TV BROADCAST ON ASIANET. HOWEVER, BEING A HOBBY FARMER ONLY IN MY RETIREMENT, WITHOUT ANY IN DEPTH KNOWLEDGE ABOUT AGRICULTURE, I VERY MUCH MISS REGULAR ADVISE ON WHAT TO GROW AND WHEN. I VERY MUCH WISH THAT YOU WILL BRING OUT A MONTHLY LIST OF AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES THAT SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT IN THE FARM, LIKE PLANTING, FERTILISATION, PEST MANAGEMENT AND RELATED ACTIVITIES. I USED TO SUBSCRIBE TO "KARSHAKASHREE" MAGAZINE, AND THEREIN, EVERY MONTH, THERE IS A SECTION FOR AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES FOR THE CURRENT MONTH. SINCE I STOPPED SUBSCRIBING TO KARSHAKASHREE MAGAZINE, I VERY MUCH MISS THIS MONTHLY ADVISE. I WISH THAT KISSAN KERALA WILL BRING OUT SUCH AN ADVISORY. THIS WILL BE HELPFUL NOT ONLY TO REGULAR FARMERS, BUT ALSO TO HOBBY FARMERS LIKE ME, WHO TRY TO DO SOME AGRICULTURAL WORK IN THEIR SMALL PLOT OF LAND, AS A HOBBY. THANKS VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE.
REGDS. TRS MANI.
Thanks a lot for the videos. Please include the video of different kinds of Fish cultivation including last episode (August 29, 2008). Presently there is no videos for fish cultivation. Thanks and appreciated the personnel who behind the Kissan Kerala program.

||Sir, I am really interested in agriculture farming projects like piggery, poultry or rabbit etc… therefore I hereby requesting to you to update any information all about this.
thanks and warm regards
||some suggestion for u.
1) when u translate your website in all indian language so your good thing spread all over india.
2) open kishan call centre.
3) go with project gujarat govt. they definitely implement in my state gujarat.
Very much grateful to team Kissankerala for doing a great job for the farmers and farming loving people like me. I regularly watch the episode on asianet and try to gain maximum knowledge from episode and on your website.
Being a layman to farming and the interest to learn more and enter into a large scale farming(both agro and animal)i would request you to provide the english version of all pamphelts and karshakan if possible the softcopy or on your website. Iam not familiar with malayalam languageg(reading and writing) as i am born and boughtup outside kerala.
You can also contact me on my mailid (email@example.com)and on cell 9995757999.
kindly look into the same and help me out.
||I have watched the videos online it is a very useful information for a district like Wayanad but the lacuna is connectivity . if the facility in TVM is provided in krishibhavans of these backward districts it would be very useful to our farmers and our society. personally i feel this because instead of giving mere information in data form it will be very useful if they watch the method themselves. this is a very good effort of yours which is appreciable but it should be made available to this district which is purely an agrarian district. i hope this will be considered
Thanks for the quick response. Any how I am interested in various animal rearing programmes, small cultivation programmes like mushrooms cultivation etc.
I would like to have some pig rearing programmes plus the scopes. I think piggery may attract some polution crisis and how to overcome that etc.
Shortly I may start some farms near Ottapalam.
Further is it possible to breed ornamental fish in ponds. We have ponds and I think Angels can be bread in these ponds without any difficulty. If I generate Angels in commercial basis what is the scope of market.
Any how Your programmes are very useful and somany times I missed due to time constraints. Hence I request you to introduce video clips in web site for our use.
||sir, ur project is very much appreciatable in todays need for modern agriculture.try to include adress of pvt. nurserries and experts.thank u.
||abdul azeez m.k

||It would be better if you can give a better view in the sense of Beginners, like get valid informations regarding say a topic POULTRY FARMING,Rabbit farming & other livestocks-Give a brief about their farming,how to start a poultry from home,the institutions where you can get more informations, regarding farming & all details in one page their advantages,start business at home or for a living.
in short all details for starting a poultry farming from home itself, rather than going out so that housewifes can easily know the basic things about it...
Otherwise this site is very good & programme on tv is also very informative.
first of all a hearty congratulations for such an effort and attempt to bring the farmers of the state to public sphere.
though the site lacks in many contents such as photos, the episodes aired in asianet is very nice in its content and presentation.
being a media research scholar at madras university i wish to contribute to the effort from your side
||Your video documentaries are very educational. I have suggestion to either include english subtitles or the documentary be made in English.
||Hi congrats to Krishideepam show in Asianet. Iam in Singapore and a regular viewer of the show. Here everything including food is imported, and really understand the importance of agriculture in a sustainable way!
I visited your youtube site and in youtube your website is given as http://www.kissankerala.in, which doesnt exist. Please correct it.
Why not you open a facebook account?
More people can know about your activities from facebook liking. People can contribute to your activities by way small funding, words of inspiration to your team, media coverage or by information.
Anyway I have provided a link to your website from my facebook page. And I have decide to promote this venture to the best way I can.
Congrats once again!
Firstly I would like to congratulate you for doing such a great job. I feel proud to be a malyali kissan. I was going through most of the queries which I was intrested. It will be great if you can find a trust worthy buyer for all our farmers who cultivate medicinal plants like pathimugham,Mussali etc.I am sure by doing this most of the farmers problem will be solved. There will be no confusions for the farmers who spend years to cultivate and end up in vein with out a proper high end buyer. I am sure you can as you know better than any one.
