Governor Forum at DakotaFest discuss technology on farms

MITCHELL, S.D.(WNAX)- Highlighting technology on farms was one of the features of the Governors Forum on Agriculture at Dakotafest this week.

Governor Kristi Noem says technology has evolved rapidly.

Much of that technology is dependent on access to high speed broadband internet. Noem says the state is helping fund that expansion.

Noem says there are some providers that aren’t willing to expand as rapidly as needed.

Over one hundred million dollars in state and federal grants are being used for the broadband expansion.
