Testimonial from vegetable grower - This course allowed me to attain multiple licenses to be able to buy S7 chemicals. I learnt about different chemicals and how to use, store, and dispose of them. I learnt how dangerous they can be and my legal obligations to store and dispose of them correctly. I learnt how to read labels to be able to correctly add the right amount of chemical to water ratio so I don’t destroy my crops or put too little and waste chemicals. I learnt to differentiate between different pictures and symbols and what they meant, which is great because my English reading skills are not great. I highly recommend this course for Vietnamese farmers, as it made me very proud and more independent. Bui, Lambells Lagoon
