A key part of Open Farm Sunday is showcasing to visitors that farming is a hi tech, professional industry utilising the best of science and technology to farm sustainably.
We are working with the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC, now part of UK Research and Innovation), plus BASF and other partners to bring you science and technology themed activity ideas and resources.
We hope these resources inspire all our host farmers to highlight at least one aspect of science and technology during your Open Farm Sunday event. Thank you.
Science on the farm posters
This set of 10 fun and engaging posters highlights how science and technology is used in farming and food production. Funded by BBSRC, part of UK Research and Innovation, you can download them here:
If you host educational visits, take a look at our Teacher Notes for ideas on how to use the posters to extend and enrich young people’s knowledge and understanding – especially useful for visits linked to the Science or Geography curricula.
