Are you a UK student between 11 and 14 years old?

Can you design or create an invention using digital technology that could help farmers across the world produce more food while protecting the environment and ensuring the safety of people on the farm?

This is a great opportunity to gain experience in creating real-life innovations, whilst learning the skills and knowledge that are relevant to a range of STEM-related careers.

The Farm Tech Challenge follows the themes of Syngenta's Good Growth Plan and its commitment to make a measurable contribution to agricultural productivity, the environment and farm safety.
