Among the distinguished winners was Lakshya Dabas, honored with the Most Impactful Agri Creator Award for his pioneering efforts in revolutionizing agricultural practices through innovation and technology. Although unable to attend in person, Dabas' brother accepted the award on his behalf, emphasizing the imperative of natural farming in India. He highlighted their initiative in training over 30,000 farmers in natural farming techniques, aimed at enhancing crop protection and sustainability.

Modi suggested that Dabas must explore Devvrat's educational resources, including YouTube videos, to further enrich his understanding of sustainable agriculture. Additionally, Modi sought Dabas' collaboration in dispelling misconceptions surrounding natural and organic farming, recognizing the potential for widespread adoption of these practices.
