Three Vietnamese farmers have made it to the top 20 of the first international web video competition for farmers worldwide, Tuoi Tre reported.
The YouFarm competition is launched by Bayer CropScience, which aims to provide farmers and people passionate about farming the opportunity to increase awareness and boost understanding of modern agriculture.
Among around 100 entries, 44 videos from 20 countries have been shortlisted.
Three Vietnamese videos cracked the top 20, namely “The farmer and his son” by Muoi Nen, “Father’s rice and homeland” by Muoi Thanh and “Technology and farming” by Bay Uoc.
The three videos ranked 7th, 12th and 20th, respectively.
The three farmers will receive their awards in late October.
It is the first time Vietnamese farmers took part in a video competition. They were assisted by professional filmmakers during the process.
