|My expertise / skills :
I am working on legumes (cowpea, soybean and pigeon pea) with the previous research on sorghum breeding. I am a curator and a breeder. My research expertise are on breeding legumes, characterization and genetic diversity assessment using morphological and nutritional quality traits as well as molecular markers. Also focuses on post-harvest insect pests and drought tolerance of cowpea.
