The article reports on the willingness of teachers to incorporate food and farming into the national curriculum based on a survey sponsored by Bayer CropScience in Great Britain in 2007. More than 80% of the schools surveyed had performed a farm visit in the past five years and half had already planned visits for 2008. The survey found that teachers want schoolchildren to appreciate the role of animals and farmers in the society and the rural environment.
