Apps and blogs connecting farmers with each other and the wider community were popular as Year 9 Cleve Area School students pitched their entrepreneurial ideas to a panel of local experts on Friday.
The presentations were part of the startup.business program run at a select few schools across the country encouraging agricultural-based entrepreneurship.
A panel of community members with agricultural backgrounds heard pitches from Year 9 students, with many addressing issues the students and their farming families face on a day-to-day basis.
Year 8 students involved in the program attended the pitches ahead of developing their own projects.
Improvements to the school chicken yard, weed resistant socks, a magnetic trailer hitch and safety upgrades to farming equipment were some of the ideas discussed.
