Farming and agricultural was the standout sector at this year’s BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition.

The event, held in Dublin’s RDS last week, attracted 550 projects from some of the best young science brains in the country. Of those 550 projects, nearly 40 were dedicated to agriculture alone and farming won big at the 53rd annual event, which was attended by around 50,000 people over the course of the week.
