    This course tittled 'The Future of Agriculture: Farming without Soil', was professionally designed to boost food security in Nigeria. The contents of the videos, both the theoretical and practical aspects, were delivered in simple, easy to understand format. The instructor tried, immensely, to deliver the course contents in a seamless manner. I am a beneficiary of this course. I strongly recommend it to as many people as possible, in order to take modern Agriculture to a new level in Nigeria. Okwudili Kevin Eya
