This is a unit of work that focuses on improvements in livestock and crop production brought about by agricultural practice, scientific research and technology. The unit is organised around six learning experiences that include investigating how agricultural products have developed over time; identifying the role of technology in increasing yields; working out how science disciplines have collaborated to solve agricultural problems; and presenting information and argument on reproductive technologies and Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). The learning experiences are supported by lesson plans, background information for teachers, numerous suggested videos and websites as well as student worksheets. The resource is supported by a video of the same title.
