Work Experience- I have participated in executing technical studies in soil fertility management since 1987. Four of them were executed in the Sudan/Sahel Zone of N.E. Nigeria. They involved soil characterization and fertility assessment in laboratory and in farmers' fields involving multi-location, on farm trials on crop response to manure to formulate sustainable farming practices. While on a 7 month course on development oriented research in agriculture in Holland 1993, I have acquired practical experience in multi-disciplinary studies on analysis of farming systems as I worked in Ghana for 3 months. - During a 2 months course in Israel (1996-1997), I have acquired experience in specific aspects of desert management including water harvesting, proactive planning against drought and use of fast legumes in agroforestry.
