Sure, talk to the farmers about hardware, geodata, yadda yadda, all that stuff that is so 2016. But also talk to them about open source seeds :)
And yes, please do share your presentation with us once you are done.

The talk is scheduled for the end of January 2017.

Basically show the audience some really good examples from agriculture around the world.
