Research Interest

My research activities have included studies on the respiratory characteristics of the soybean (Glycine mays), the link between mineral nutrition, the onset of senescence and yield in the soybean, and on the effects of environmental factors on the growth, development and productivity of the groundnut (Arachis hypogaea), cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) and bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea)
