Quiz results: How did you fare on our quiz about all things agriculture?

AgriLand recently ran a quiz on all things agriculture to test our readers’ knowledge on topics from machinery to sheep to agri-politics.

Around 5,000 people have taken part so far and if you haven’t had a go at the quiz it can be found here.

The average result of those who took part was exactly 50% which equates to answering 10 questions correctly out of the 20 questions on the quiz (as of Monday, August 31).

24 people who took the quiz managed to score full marks while 54 people scored over 80%.

At the other end of the scale, 100 people scored under 20% on our quiz so a little brushing up on agricultural trivia might possibly be needed!

Keep an eye out for further quizzes on AgriLand in the coming weeks.

Who should be the next minister for agriculture?

AgriLand hosted an impromptu online poll last week which ran for circa 24 hours, whereby readers had the opportunity to have their say on who should be the next Minister for Agriculture.

It should be noted that this was an ‘open’ poll; it was open to all and sundry. In other words, it didn’t involve a ‘controlled sample’.
