Agriculture in India Via the Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program

Perspective is the lens that will focus your decision making process. Whether it’s big picture “industry as a whole” type thinking or an individual “I’m really happy to have running water” type of gratitude, an understanding of perspective is important.

RealAgriculture’s Bernard Tobin caught up with Wayne at the Western Fair Farm Show in London, Ontario.
