Work experience
- After my university training (Diplome universitaire de technologie, Diplome d'ingenieur de techniques agricoles, Diplome d'etudes approfondies), My work was focused on agronomic research of legumes and particularly on biological nitrogen fixation using 15N methodology and fertilizer based on rock phosphates and organic matter._x000D_
- As the Cowpea National Coordinator, I work closely with extension services on technology transfer. I also trained and got a Master in Agronomy (USA, Univ. of Mn.) to conduct research on maize and other cereals (millet, sorghum, rice). I conducted only the work on fertilization based on fish by products to increase crop yield and soil fertility. Then, I extended my experience in agroforestry after my Ph.D., work on nitrogen contribution of tree legumes on maize nitrogen uptake in alley cropping._x000D_
- I have attended meetings, workshops, conferences in USA, Mexico, France and Africa
