Brief Profile

I hailed from Ibadan in Oyo state over three decades ago, I have been a scientist in National Horticultural Research Institute, Ibadan for three years. I am a member of Horticultural Society of Nigeria. A postgraduate student of Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.

Women Agricultural scientists are well positioned to understand farmers’ needs from production to processing to marketing. They know the dynamics and limitations that farmers faced in obtaining household food and economic security, and are often informed about relevant technologies that women farmers will readily adopt.

I therefore seek better knowledge and more productive technologies aimed at boosting crop production and incomes for smallholder farmers. I belief while developing myself, I can simultaneously contribute to science.
