Spring 2019 Virtual Field Trip: Planting

Take your class on a virtual field trip to a soybean farm to learn how food is grown in Ohio! Join us to see how a farmer manages his crop throughout the growing season from planting to harvest.

This unique learning experience allows your students to connect with a real Ohio soybean farmer.

  • Engage in a live video tour of soybean fields and ride in a tractor and/or combine
  • Ask questions about planting, seed germination, management, and harvest
  • Discover the uses and benefits of Ohio soybeans
  • Understand the challenges farmers face and the decisions they must make
  • Learn about current topics like GMOs, water quality, and nutrient management

If a scheduled trip does not fit a classroom’s schedule, the registering teacher may request a recording of a trip be sent for viewing at another time.


Watch for fall VFTs sign-ups! These trips will cover topics such as harvest, transportation, storage, water/soil quality, preparation for the next planting season.
