Disappearing Coffee, a New It Vegetable, and Great Canadians: The 2017 FarmTech Wrap Up


What’s the new it vegetable for 2017? You heard it here first: it’s beets.

But after sitting down with the Rt. Honourable Brian Mulroney, General Roméo Dallaire, and Olympian Clara Hughes, you’d think Kelvin Heppner and Lyndsey Smith would have much more to talk about than beets…and they do, it just wouldn’t be a RealAgriculture wrap up without a hint of the ridiculous.

From a surprisingly in-depth discussion on MRLs (maximum residue limits), to the case of the disappearing coffee, and on to career highlight discussions with significant Canadians, Kelvin and Lyndsey tally up the highlights and meaningful moments from FarmTech 2017 (check out all of our interviews here).

Low-German curious? (Who could blame you?) Check out the song mentioned in the video, here.
