Dear  Mr. Sidharth Varadarajan,

Greetings!

First of all, let me thank you profusely for publishing the article “Palani Guava growers export to West Asian countries’ on 12.09.2013 in the Farmers Note Book of your esteemed daily The Hindu. As of now, I have received more than 600 calls from the farmers, traders, exporters, processors, fertilizer company representatives, organic producers, APEDA officials, Bankers, police IG, Army Captain,  Scientists, retired employees, fellow scientists, friends, students, house wife and general publics from Delhi to Kanniyakumari.

I have also received more than 45 mails from the Hindu readers. Many of them appreciated the effort taken to help the farmers for exporting guava. I had also received calls from exporters numbering more than 10 for getting guava fruit from Palani area. Most importantly, officials from APEDA, Bangalore had called and expressed to provide infrastructural facilities to the Palani farmers for further expansion.

The article has evoked a great amount of awareness about the scientific cultivation, fruit handling and marketing of guava among the readers of Hindu. Finally, I would like to express my sincere thanks to Hindu for giving me a learning experience from the readers. It also motivated meet work beyond.

Last but not least, all the readers had expressed about the comprehensive reporting by the Hindu correspondent. And to conclude, I never expected this much response from the readers pouring a range of questions relating to production till consumption. However, I had several missed calls in my cell which I will attend later.

I am a Farmer with a Degree in Agricultural Engineering and also the Founder Secretary of The Fruit Growers’ Association of Tamil Nadu.I have been responsible to a small extent for promoting the commercial cultivation and value addition of Amla in South India.
I have been a reader of your esteemed newspaper, The Hindu, for the last thirty years and regularly read the Agriculture section published in your Thursday edition of the paper. The information published is very informative and conveyed in a very simple to understand manner. The last two articles on Jack fruit processing and Papaya cultivation are very well researched and presented. I request you to kindly consider publishing a full page on Agriculture with information on Agricultural practices at the National and International level. Many educated youngsters are coming (back) into Agriculture and I am sure that more information on Agriculture will motivate them to achieve greater heights.
I am also a subscriber of the Tamil edition of The Hindu and am captivated by the excellent layout and the information provided by the newspaper. I would request that you kindly include the Agriculture section in the Tamil Edition of The Hindu.

Dear MJ,

Hope you are doing well.

The piece on Bt Cotton with your byline was a great surprise to dozens of us. It was obviously from an industry press release (the reason I say this is that other journalists had also filed stories with the same lines) – I wanted to know from you whether you had visited these farmers cited in the report. Also, what about balancing it with stories of farmers who have not done so well against the claims? You have been such a consistent writer on sustainable farming that this certainly came as a great surprise to us.

Dear Mr. Prabu,
Your article on M.C.Rao (Oct 21) was very interesting.
I like your blunt approach in pointing out corruption in Govt. machinery. Remote
control may work for Railway minister Mamata  Banerjee but not for investment in
farm sector. You have touched upon my favourite points: rotting food grains and Commissions/ Committees on agriculture.

Your presentation now resembles Sainath’s style and

From

 V. Ramanan Shanmugam

USA

 

Sir,

 

Who Am I

I came to the united states from chennai 12 years back. I am U.S citizen.

Why I Value Agriculture So Much

Today no one dies in the United States of hunger. They die of cancer caused by food. The food plays a vital role. I have a 4 year old daughter. I want to teach her on organic/traditional farming methods. I want to learn ancient/current Indian way of farming without chemicals. Indian farmers being poor, are a blessing to the world. They haven’t been polluted by money or chemical based farming.

They adopt lean philosophy, which is taught in world famous business school’s, without them visiting one. They do not have highly sophisticated GPS based seed sowing machines, yet they have quality in their food products. I want to know that knowledge and share it with my daughter.

I still remember a lady who used to visit our house 20 years back with a basket full of vegetables. Her basket was plastered with cow dung. The basket was made of bamboo. Cow dung is anti-bacterial. It has so much in it which we do not know about.

Why I Like A Agriculture Section In Hindu

Few of my friends and colleagues have shown lot of interest in agriculture section of Hindu. The Hindu correspondent is more pro-organic, pro-farmer, pro-nation, pro-life. In a age where people want to make money through any means, we find a honest correspondent giving quality work to improve one’s own country.

We have been reading his section for quite a while and we are very much impressed with his articles. His articles not only apply to India and Indian farmers, but farmers in other nations also. We feel he is a true asset to Hindu newspaper and farming community as a whole. To find a person who is so much interested in pure food and a journalist by profession is very rare. In Indian conditions (climatic), it is hard to find people with so much interest.

Many of my American colleagues are showing lot of interest in Organic way of living/farming. They feel India has lot to contribute. For Eg. Neem is extensively used in the U.S farming area. A good example is http://www.pathtofreedom.com. A urban homestead in the heart of Los Angels. They use neem based products for their crops.

Nature is always communist. I haven’t seen nature charging a $1 for its output. It always serves others. Being in a capitalist country, i have found nature is communist in thinking. A recent remarks by Shri Jairam Ramesh on chinese

Chinese do not talk as much as Indians, but Chinese perform better, they do much more. I am full of admiration for the way that China just gets to work, where as you know, India talk and talk and keep on talking,” he was quoted by Xinhua as saying on May 7.

 Collective Request From Me, My American And European Friends & Colleagues

Currently agriculture section occupies half a page. Could this be extended to a booklet (4 pages,8 sides). We in the U.S and Europe would like to see articles on organic/traditional way of cultivation by Indian farmers and others. We would like to see financial loan based information for farmers once in a month. In a nutshell, agriculture section articles in Hindu newspaper should be a reference material for PhD thesis. We would love to see the following – Page 01,03 – Non chemical based cultivation case studies, Page 04 -List of farmers who do organic way of cultivation. Once a month Page 03,04 can contain loan information, problems, suggestions from farmers to the government.

A Case Study

I recently contacted a farmer mentioned in agriculture section of the Hindu. The article is dated Dec 14 2006. I have received good information from him in preparing a fish based organic pesticide, growth improving liquid which can be used for plants. I am documenting this process to be published in few newspapers here. I am going to put The Hindu newspaper as the inspiration and source for this information.

Conclusion

If i can convince you to publish 4 pages (8 sides), India and the world wins. Future generations will be awarded with quality,pure food. Small kids will receive pure chemical free food. If I have convinced you I would like to know the reason.If i didn’t convince you to publish 8 sides, i have failed. If i have failed, i would like to know the reason. Maybe i haven’t explained my point clearly.

The Hindu Newspaper being another son/daughter for many in India and abroad, the benefit to humanity will be very high.

Dear Mr.Prabhu,
Greetings from IISR, Calicut.
I am writing this to thank you for bringing to the knowledge of larger public about our KVK activities pertaining to the Soil Health Cards (Hindu dated 13th May) and about the  VVV club. This has kindled a lot of interest among agencies working with farmers.We have started getting emails and phone calls asking our help in organising similar work. In fact, I should thank you for taking the cause of farmers and bringing to lime light such important activities that form base for successful agriculture. We talk of plant health leaving soil health ! We must also help farmers to form SHG so that they become self sustaining for marketing and also for various other common interests.
You have beautifully brought this in your story. I thank you once again for your wonderful presentation and style in writing.
With best wishes,

To Mr. M.J.Prabhu,

My sincere regards and many many thanks to You . Jan 14th ,   You and of course The Hindu made it a RED letter day for me. Till today I have received more then 700 calls from all over the world especially from south India .What more an innovator can aspect in his lifetime. I no longer feel lonely now. You just have placed me among the people now. That article is a heavenly blessing for an innovator /me. Apart from the call I have received around 150 mail also. many of them for product enquiry .Some of them asking for a solution of the problem in there technology field. They are happy that, through The Hindu they got someone to   look after their technological problem in their respective field.

But above all , the mail from the student and passed out tech. graduate —saying inspired by the article , they want go out to solve the problem of the farmer and want me forward the problem of the agri field to them. That is  the real victory. That was my dream it came true through You Sir and The Hindu.My feelings—  THE HINDU—-means ,THE HEAVENLY CARRIER TO REACH THE GOAL.

Sir, I am on the last stage of developing a chair for the handicap people who just can,t move at all . THIS CHAIR IS GOING TO MAKE THEM SELF DEPENDENT IN TOILLETING AND CLEANING. IT IS GOING TO BE MY SALUTE TO- THE HINDU.

Sir I am not happy because ,this popularity will give me monetary benefits. I never had tried to make money. I have lost everything in my life.I just have devoted my life to the deprived one –to give them some kind of livelihood  by exploring new area of employment through innovation. There has been many instance ,when I sold My valuables—Car,ring etc. to meet the R&D expenditure.

Sir, as my tribute to you and the people from south India ,I have decided to developed a very low cost ARECANUT peeler (I found from the mail that,a sizable no of people engaged in that sector).  My Hats of to you

Congrats for adding value to the Farmers Note book coloum. We are planning to assign a Ph.D., thesis topic to a student to analyse the 01. Contents of  Farmers Note Book coloum  02.  its  impact acrosss different sections of the farming community and other related sectors as well 03. How does it compares with the rest of the tools to transfer the technology 04. Current status of the technology published an year back – any possible improvements or detoriaration ? 05. Chances of failures or non replicability 06. Do we need scientific validation for some of the published items 07. What are negative feed back received on certain published matter ? 08. Diffusion rate of published technology 09. Identification of issues for formulating Farmers Participatory Operational Research?
If possible why not try publication of the same as a book in regional languages for still greater reach? The Hindu and National Innovation Foundation at IIM Ahmadabad may consider this issue  in as much as the farmers are really technology hungry and they are hunting for the same. Budget and identification of suitable translator in each language are the issues to be decided .
Thanks. Keep going. I am so happy about it.

AGRI-BUSINESS KNOWLEDGE  INITIATIVE
Mr. M.J. Prabhu has presented innovative ideas which should go a long way in agricultural development. It is really an innovative idea that agriculture  could grow in clusters around metropolitan centres. The idea of an Intelligent Agrologistic Network (IAN) and a network of Rural Transformation Centres (RTCs), supported by adequate soft skills and transport and communication facilities should mitigate risks in farm sector.
Mr. Prabhu’s simplified ideas are path-breaking, especially because these are the ideas that are directly applicable to small and marginal farmers with very small holdings. They practise organic farming. Be it crop diversity, seeds, farm pond, milch cattle, mixed cropping, rain harvesting or planting trees, the real task involved is that of winning over the specific farming communities and upgrading their confidence level and supporting them with governmental and non-governmental agencies. It is an exercise in leadership building and cultivation.
However, if there is zeal and zest on the part of the village leaders and the banking community, there will be success. The efforts, to begin with, should be confined to fewer areas and gradually extended over larger areas. It is not desirable to spread resources too thinly. An important objective should be the identification of the deserving farmers, prevention of leakages and ensuring that the benefits do not go to better-off farmers. If successfully done, the approaches suggested by the author will emerge as yeoman service to the small farms, especially in the Indian context.

Shri M.J. Prabu,

Agricultural Correspondent, The Hindu, Chennai.

Sir,

Greetings,

I am very pleased to write to you in connection with your agricultural articles published in the Farmer’s Note Book of the Hindu. It is worth to mention that the articles written by you on every Thursday have made significant changes in the mind set of many farmers.

The newspaper Hindu is believed to be for only those who know English with a higher language but this trend has now changed particularly in the Farmers Note Book.  The simple and easily readable write up of agriculture articles really helped many farmers to read and understand the changes in agricultural system in a simple way.

Recently I have attended a farmers meeting at Villupuram organized by the Muthumalla Trust of Chennai, where in most farmers referred the article on Casuarina written by you in the Farmers Note Book. I also came to know that many farmers buy the Hindu only on Thursday for reading the Farmers Note Book.

It is also surprised to note that the farmers who do not speak and read English also get information from the educated farmers mainly to know what is written in the Farmer’s Note Book. It is very significant to indicate that the state of the art, various agro technologies have reached many farmers and made significant impacts through your writeup.

I do wish that your initiative to promote scientific and possible agriculture for augmenting rural livelihood will also be available to all levels of the farming community. I wish every success in all your future endeavors.

Thanking you

Dear Mr.Prabhu,
All the statements I have been making about your column stand vindicated. You have changed the face of Agricultural Page with your Farmers note book column. Your recent writings about Bihar farmers show that, in otherwise a backward state, there are lot of enterprising farmers whos knowledge could be very useful. I am coming to grips with the fact, that popular writers in agriculture could also be as popular as sports writers. I am thankful to you for the fine job that Hindu in general and you , in particular, are doing for
the cause of agriculture.
Yours sincerely,

Dr. V. Parthasarathy

Many of you are familiar with this column by M J Prabhu of the Hindu. This is probably the only english daily which has a section for farmers even  though it is in english. I have heard that farmers do buy The Hindu when the> column appears and get others to read it out for them – the column has been featuring organic farming success stories continuously. This is a very
useful addition from them in the form of video shots of the farmers.

Dear Shri. Prabhu,
Greetings from IISR, Calicut.
While thanking you for regularly publishing success stories on our Institute, I am glad to draw your attention to a story published in the Farmer’s Notebook of your esteemed News Paper on 14-06-2007 on Mr. Jojo Jacob, a young farmer and a beneficiary of our Krishi Vigyan Kendra, at Peruvannamuzhi. Since then, he is getting many visitors from various places within and outside the state, to get hands on experiences in his enterprises. Both the KVK and the farmer also receive several enquiries on phone regarding the success. He has become a member of the KVK Scientific Advisory Committee and became a popular model farmer and Master trainer in various enterprises.
Recently his achievement has won him the National award for his successful enterprises in agriculture and the award will be presented to him in the last week of February 2009 at IARI in New Delhi. It is worth to mention that the success story published in the Farmer’s Notebook of the Hindu Daily was also responsible for his getting the award.
I am thankful to you for the efforts you are taking for the cause of the farming community of the country by bringing these unsung heroes to limelight.
Thanking you once again,

Sir, brilliant! I think the Hindu is doing true service to the country, and it is doing what the Scientists are too bloated in their egos to do. Farming needs to be learned by experience– the farmer is the true scientist, not those paper-writing laboratory rats who have  little field exposure and market pressures.We find the farmers notebook a great inspiration in these times of agricultural crises.

Letter from G. Nammalvar, Organic scientist

Dear Mr M J Prabu,

Green Greetings!  I am pleased to write to you a few lines with regards to the farmers note book of THE HINDU.

I understand that the case studies published in the farmers note book has created enthusiasm among farmers throughout India.  The motivated farmers immediately contact the concerned persons in search of details and further information. The simplicity of the language and apt usage of phrases and selection of rare messages motivate the farmers into action. Now a days more and more educated farmers get into farming and also they quickly communicate it to the farmers (who are not familiar with English) in the neighbour hood.

Inspired by your articles more and more farmers are adopting organic farming.  I do believe that round about 40,000 to 50,000 farmers in India are getting converted from chemical farming into organic farming by following the practices published by you. As the farmers are following organic farming the application of chemical fertilizers and chemical pesticides have come down drastically. In general your contribution towards the transformation is appreciable and prize worthy.

I have to appreciate your commitment in promoting eco-friendly, sustainable agriculture, with which you travel nook and corner of this country and collect information related to promotion of sustainable agriculture.

Expecting your reply,

Sincerely,

Dr G Nammalvar

    Dear sirs,
    This has reference to the Farmers’ note in The Hindu dated 25.12.08
    entitled “Self help groups come to the rescue of farmers,farm women too”.
    The farmer’s note has become very popular with many readers of Hindu. The
    response I receive are far and wide. It is gratifying to note that the
    contents are presented very lucidly for variety of readers. I learn that
    many local papers as well as local Agricultural journals translate and
    publish them. It indicates the popularity.
    Regarding the latest farmer’s note, I thank the Hindu for propagating
    the philosophy of self help groups. I also listened to the Audio of the
    same. It was really satisfying to listen.A small initiative taken by
    kvk in the remote corner of Kerala under the foot hills of Western
    Ghats and run by a set of “Not so educated” women of the village has
    been shown to the world as a model. On behalf of these enterprising
    women SHG, I place on record my gratitude to Hindu. This is one of the
    great service being rendered by Hindu to the farmers.
    A word of appreciation for bringing it in local lanugage and in a
    very licid way. I thank The Hindu on behalf of the farming community for
    the yeoman service. The language is so attractive, simple and piercingly
    philosophical.
    Thanks to Mr.Prabhu.

    AGRI-BUSINESS KNOWLEDGE INITIATIVE

    Dr. Peter Smeets and Mr. M.J. Prabhu have presented innovative ideas which should go a long way in agricultural development. It is really an innovative idea that agriculture could grow in clusters around metropolitan centres. The idea of an Intelligent Agrologistic Network (IAN) and a network of Rural Transformation Centres (RTCs), supported by adequate soft skills and transport and communication facilities should mitigate risks in farm sector.

    Mr. Prabhu’s simplified ideas are path-breaking, especially because these are the ideas that are directly applicable to small and marginal farmers with very small holdings. They practise organic farming. Be it crop diversity, seeds, farm pond, milch cattle, mixed cropping, rain harvesting or planting trees, the real task involved is that of winning over the specific farming communities and upgrading their confidence level and supporting them with governmental and non-governmental agencies. It is an exercise in leadership building and cultivation.

    However, if there is zeal and zest on the part of the village leaders and the banking community, there will be success. The efforts, to begin with, should be confined to fewer areas and gradually extended over larger areas. It is not desirable to spread resources too thinly. An important objective should be the identification of the deserving farmers, prevention of leakages and ensuring that the benefits do not go to better-off farmers. If successfully done, the approaches suggested by the authors will emerge as yeoman service to the small farms, especially in the Indian context.

    Sir,
    Greetings,
    I am very pleased to write to you in connection with your agricultural articles published in the Farmer’s Note Book of the Hindu. It is worth to mention that the articles written by you on every Thursday have made significant changes in the mind set of many farmers. The newspaper Hindu is believed to be for only those who know English with a higher language but this trend has now changed particularly in the Farmers Note Book. The simple and easily readable write up of agriculture articles really helped many farmers to read and understand the changes in agricultural system in a simple way.
    Recently I have attended a farmers meeting at Villupuram organized by the Muthumalla Trust of Chennai, where in most farmers referred the article on Casuarina written by you in the Farmers Note Book. I also came to know that many farmers buy the Hindu only on Thursday for reading the Farmers Note Book. It is also surprised to note that the farmers who do not speak and read English also get information from the educated farmers mainly to know what is written in the Farmer’s Note Book. It is very significant to indicate that the state of the art, various agro technologies have reached many farmers and made significant impacts through your writeup.
    I do wish that your initiative to promote scientific and possible agriculture for augmenting rural livelihood will also be available to all levels of the farming community. I wish every success in all your future endeavors.
    Thanking you

  9. dear Prabhu

    I want to compliment you on behalf of entire Honey Bee Network and NIF for the excellent response to the column Farmers’ Notebook that grassroots innovators have been receiving. Never in the last ten years, has a column in any newspaper evoked such response from all over the country that FNB has done. In fact in the recent fifth Grassroots Innovation Award function where President Patil recognized the outstanding innovators, several innovators got up in the feedback session and complimented you in the open session. They were so overwhelmed with the response that they found the hundreds of calls, smses and messages very fulfilling. What was quite remarkable was the response of entrepreneurs from south many of whom not only called up but also visited the innovators and negotiated business deals.

    Keep it up. This column can add a lot of value to the grassroots innovation movement in the country by giving visibility to the innovators scouted by HBN volunteers over the last twenty years. We can not reach the masses that your paper can reach. This synergy is very vital for unfolding creative potential of common people and also for giving visibility to unsung heroes of our society.

    with my best wishes and I wish that you maintain the enthusiastic spirit in favor of knowledge rich-economically poor farmers.

    May god bless you all

  11. Respected Sir,

    It is not an exaggeration to mention here that Thursdays are special to me. The very mention of ‘THURSDAY’ anywhere at any time by anybody brings to my mind my favorite ‘Farmers Note book’ article in “The Hindu”.

    With a pain in the heart and with a guilt, I would like to point out some mistakes in your article “Easy to apply Bio-fertilizers ……” in my favorite section the THE HINDU on 20-05-2010.

    MISTAKE by oversight No.1 :
    Normally plants need nitrogen, phosphorus and Calcium – commonly referred to as N,P,K – for their good growth.
    CORRECTION: The word ‘Calcium’ should be replaced with ‘potassium’.

    MISTAKE by oversight No.2:
    “The bio-formulations produce in our unit can be used for nearly two years, compared to the local vermi-compost (solid bio-fertilizers) and other …..”
    CORRECTION: The word ‘Vermi-compost’ should be replaced with “*Vermiculite”.

    *Vermiculite is a naturally occurring mineral normally used as a growth medium for the multiplication of bio-fertilizers and it is wrong to classify it as bio-fertilizer.

    Vermi-compost is an organic fertilizer and shouldn’t be bracketed with bio-fertilizers.

    I have waited for the past one month to notify these mistakes when you publish the above mentioned article in this blog. Please publish this feedback, even if you are not going to publish the article here so as to set right the records for the benefit of all.

  13. Dear Mr Prabhu
    I’m a journalist by career and took to farming juts two years back. its only on saturdays and sundays that i visit my farm but my heart is on it all the days. My farm is 8 kms from Badlapur in Thane district of Maharashtra. I have always had a dream of growing my fruits and vegetables which has become only recently. I have never being a farmer and neither my parents were. I grew up in cantonments, as my father was an engineer in the IAF. your articles and features have been a great help. In fact, I have shared the information gathered from your article in my blog (http://sundayfarmer.wordpress.com).
    Though I’m editor of couple of lifestyle magazines published from Mumbai I still pursue farming–translating ideas gathered from experts. In your course of work you may have come across the problem of rodents eating seeds. I ma facing the same problem, do you have any suggestion which doesn’t take help of harmful chemicals but help in addressing this problem.
