The Campaign – #FarmingSimplified
After doing research and talking to farmers we realised that it’s a tough task to setup pipes, move pipes and manage pipes within farms. Also, farmers are worried about carrying these pipes, storing pipes and durability, so considering all these aspects we came up with the campaign thought #FarmingSimplified and narrated a story which showed that doing farming is now simplified.
We started the campaign with teasers by asking few questions:
Teaser 1– Can farming become simpler?
Teaser 2 – Can there be a cost-effective way to do farming?
Hindi Teaser 2
Marathi Teaser 2
