Techweek'17 podcast: 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.
"We were both intrigued as to how this event would gel/clash with the ideas espoused by Dr Rosie Roberts at Silicon Mahia (in essence, on farm is dead because of the innovation coming) - the answer came with our chat with Peter, the driving force behind the Farming2020 event ... listen up."
