What’s your agriculture IQ?
The not-for-profit event, which aims to attract young people with an interest in agriculture and irrigation, will be held at The Crossing Café from 6.30pm Friday 17 March and will include five rounds of trivia – to truly test the local agriculture knowledge.
Well-known comedian Elliott Goblet has been engaged to host and MC the night, which will provide a night full of laughs and entertainment for the crowd.
The event is being coordinated by a number of community organisations, including Murray Irrigation, and will focus on engaging the next generation of farmers and industry professionals.
Murray Irrigation Executive Manager Corporate Affairs and Stakeholder Engagement, Perin Davey, said Murray Irrigation has jumped on board to support the event as it’s a wonderful initiative that will engage regional people in a fun and interactive way.
“We’re thrilled to support AgQ, it will be a fantastic evening and will also provide an opportunity for attendees to improve their agriculture and irrigation knowledge,” Ms Davey said. “This is about getting people engaged in a different way – to reconnect with networks while having fun.”
AgQ will involve five rounds of trivia that will incorporate agriculture based knowledge, as well as a range of general trivia questions.
Three presenters, yet to be announced, will also briefly present on the night to expand upon related trivia topics.
“In between the rounds of trivia three presenters will provide expert information on their fields. At this stage we are hoping to include updates on commodity trading, irrigation and livestock. This will link directly to the trivia and will provide valuable information to attendees,” Ms Davey said.
“You can keep updated on event information through the AgQ event page on Facebook, all announcements and general information will be posted here.”
Tickets for the night can be purchased online via Eventbrite. Attendees can book a table of 10, or purchase individual tickets to join a mix and match table.
