Students from Ministry of Agriculture Training Institute (MATI – Ilonga) have been advised to have the culture of reading and search for wide knowledge in various agriculture produce and practices. This will not only help them to excel as subject matter experts (SMEs) but also in future they can have self-employment and become next millionaires. This dream can become true if they learn how to apply different best agricultural techniques and adopt innovative and proven agriculture technologies documented into different booklets available at Mkulima collection – SUA.

The advice was given by the Director of Sokoine National Agricultural Library – SNAL Prof. Camilius Sanga when he was talking to them during the visitation at Ministry of Agriculture Training Institute – MATI-Ilonga, Kilosa in Morogoro region.

They were also advised that since they are into agriculture fields by reading and research they can become good writers in various agricultural practices and contribute in building the agricultural information resources by adding them into Mkulima Collection.
