The Canadian Young Speakers for Agriculture held its annual speaking event last weekend in conjunction with the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, at Toronto, Ont. RealAgriculture.com was there to film the promising speakers — an amazing mix of passionate, well-spoken and wise-beyond-their-years individuals.

This year’s junior and senior winners respectively, Dasha Metropolitansky and Lydia Harrison, both spoke on one of five predetermined agriculturally-related topics. Dasha spoke on the importance of water for agriculture and globalization, and Lydia spoke on farmers’ biggest opportunities.
