Farmers toil hard day and night to grow crops and so their crops are dear to them as their own child. And so, they adopt a number of conventional as well as modern methods to safeguard their crop from any potential damage. But recently, a farmer from Andhra Pradesh did something absolutely unique and unheard-of.

In his 10 acre farm, Reddy grows okra, cabbage, chillies and cauliflower. Ahmedabad Mirror quotes the farmer saying,
It’s simple: more people will look at Sunny Leone’s pictures and fewer at my farm. Believe me, it’s working. My cropyield has improved. Year after year, I would suffer losses because of a poor yield. The crops looked healthy for some time, but then something would go wrong. It then struck me that my farm is located next to a road and every passer-by can see it.
Therefore, in order to ward all the evil eyes off his farm, he put up two big posters of bikini-clad Sunny Leone costing him about Rs 600. He further says,
It’s been a month and I can see the difference. People don’t look at my farm as they are busy staring at the pictures.
