Max Armstrong offers a look at the wish by some of ‘setting back the clock’ and what that might mean

Max Armstrong shares insight from a scientist who looked at technology we have available today and the “wish” to go back in time. She shares how technology and change today offers so much for society. She looked for example at how an Ethopian farm family spends 1,200 hours weeding; is that a time where we want to return?

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
