Sarian was one of very few practitioners of the profession of competent agriculture reporting in developing Asia, where agriculture has been the principal livelihood and holds promise of being an increasingly lucrative mainstay.

In 1974, Zacarias Bolong Sarian received the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Journalism, Literature and Creative Communication Arts for “his standards of editing and publishing interesting, accurate and constructive farm news.”
