Hermitage Research Facility Schools Plant Science Competition

The DAF Hermitage Research Facility (HRF) Schools Plant Science Competition offers engaging ways for students to gain understanding and skills in key areas identified within the Australian Science Curriculum. Encouraging the next generation of people who will be involved with agriculture as scientists or as farmers is crucial to how we will face the future and is a key purpose of the Plant Science Competition.

The 2018 DAF HRF Schools Plant Science Competition opens 22 January 2018 and closes 29 June 2018.

Competition supporters

A number of organisations and individuals support the competition each year and provide funding for general operating costs, the annual Awards Day and Agricultural Science Expo and a range of prizes for winning students. Without our supporters, the competition could not be run. We would like to sincerely thank our current supporters:
