Launched on 26 May 2015, DD Kisan is a new 24×7 Doordarshan channel meant exclusively for Indian farmers. It has interesting, informative as well as entertaining programme content. But very importantly, it has two time slots at 8:30-9:00 am and 10:30-11:00 am reserved for Mausam Khabar.

This program begins with a daily weather update, which is fairly detailed and explains the weather situation over the entire country. Mausam Khabar is not just a display of weather data or graphics, but it also contains advisories tailored for different agro-climatic regions of the country. There are live comments by both IMD meteorologists and agricultural experts, who explain the agricultural significance of the current and expected weather.

In addition to the dedicated Mausam Khabar, which is telecast daily from Monday to Saturday, the DD Kisan channel has a continuous scroll that gives various kinds of information of interest to farmers, including evolving weather conditions.
