Work ExperienceI have been involved in research on soil and water management problems and related (themes) field with particular emphasize on the effects of tillage and crop residue on water use of millet in semiarid northeast nigeria for over 5 years. Landshaping for soil mosture conservation and its effects on yield and water use of sorghum, millet and guna melon< effects of soil compaction and organic matter incorporation on water transmission properties of different soil types in northeast Nigeria. I have also been involved in carrying out survey and classification of soils in northern Nigeria with particular reference to those of the cases in north east nigeria/southern niger, Hydrological studies in the oasis of the manga grasslands, involving modelling groundwater flow in and around the oasis as a tool so assessing sustainability of the farming systems in the oases. In addition, cropping system surveys in the oasis and various water management options in the oasis are all areas where I have be
