Burning question? Follow the steps below:

  1. Work out which agricultural area you think the question lies in – e.g. questions about growing wheat would be under “Grains”. Ask anyone about the lifestyle!
  2. Tweet the question to the partnered farmer(s) and @AgriEducate in the relevant category. If you’re not sure just tweet it to @AgriEducate and we’ll partner you up!
  3. Wait for the response, right after the farmer has finished sowing, fertilising or harvesting they’ll get straight to it.
  4. Check our Answers page and your email for the response!
  5. Keep in touch via Twitter to see other questions, answers and to see how your farmer is progressing in the season.

**If there is no partnered farmer for the production category you desire – tweet it to @AgriEducate and we’ll throw it out to our follower base to see if we can get the question answered**
