Cyber Crop Quiz - part 3 & 4

Here is part 3 and 4 of our Cyber Crop Quiz ...

A reminder of how it works -
  • There are 40 quiz questions, yep, 40!!! But to make things easier, I will give you 10 questions each Wednesday during August (1st, 8th, 16th, 22nd).
  • You need to e-mail your answers to each section directly to me helen @
  • ALL answers must reach me by the 31st August
  • Each question is worth 1 point - the person with the highest score overall is the winner of this challenge
  • Google and the like is NOT allowed and I ask for your honesty in this regard. It's ok if you have no clue about the answers, just give it your best guess, and if you're really, really stuck, I might provide some clues ...
  • HAVE FUN!!! and hopefully learn a little bit about Australian agriculture along the way
I will post the questions each week over in the original forum post and here on the blog. If you have any comments/questions please use the forum comments as per usual, or you can e-mail me.
