I took Sarah Singla’s training course on plant nutrition. It was dense and precise. She made complex topics easy to understand through slide shows that were varied and interesting. Sarah approaches the subject in a pragmatic way, which is important because we are first and foremost agricultural producers and it is results that matter! This training has stimulated my curiosity to learn more about plant nutrition and the potential of our soils.
