Techweek'17, On farm innovation at Farming 2020.

With Techweek events up and down the country, the Access Granted tech podcasters have hit the road to talk to the people and check out events in the tech fest.

In this episode Raj Khushal and Mike Riversdale make their way to Farming 2020.

"5am! Yes, that's early but it had to be done to get from Mahia Beach to the LIC Innovation Farm in time for the first day (of three) of Farming2020 ... and we did it. Remarkably the Google Maps got our arrival time down to the minute, and that included stop offs for photo taking.
