Work ExperienceI graduated in Crop Science, (1978) at University of Nigeria Nsukka and proceeded to the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, USA where I had both Masters and Ph.D in 1982 and 1985, respectively. Since I returned to Nigeria in 1986, I have worked in projects within the Sudan and Sahelian (semi-arid) zones. I have been teaching and involved with research and consultancy services in various aspects of cropping systems in the marginal semi-arid environment of N.E. Nigeria. My publications range from production agronomy to areas of studies to mitigate the effect of aridity within the agroecological zones of Sudan and Sahel Savannas
