(Picture only shows half of the room as the wide angle lens from the stage is not wide enough. Think of it like a butterfly image.) I’ve completed my two talks at Farm Tech12 in Edmonton Alberta Canada, one as a keynote speaker on PX Farms and the other on my Nuffield travels. Standing in front of 1600 people to give an hour talk, stretched me, which is what Nuffield is about. I was told “do something everyday that takes you out of your comfort zone”. I shall remember this adventure for along time to come. I’m awake at 3 am Canadian time as i haven’t been able to climatise to the time which considering I’m┬áreturning home┬átoday is a good thing. Ive never been to an event like it. 1600 people for 3 days listening to keynote speakers and break out sessions. Its a well run event and there is a lot of younger farmers present and also positive feeling towards the future of Canadian agriculture. Google Farmtech12 and see the program. I spent some time with Steve Larocque a Canadian Scholar who is a Canadian Controlled Traffic Farming pioneer.
