My name is Adekeye, Adetayo Bamikole, a PhD AgSE student in Crop and pasture and sustainable environment (2015/2016 set). I am a Nigerian and precisely from Kwara State, I choose to be enrolled in CEADESE to maximize and fulfill my research potentials as Forage/pasture scientist. My profession is a dual-purpose profession – as an agronomist and an animal Scientist, and to this effect I have been working on some tropical pasture species –Stylosantheshamatacvverano, Panicummaximum and Andropogontectorum, and hydroponic fodder production. Currently, I’m collaborating in evaluating the fodder potentials of 57 Germplasms of Maize developed by IITA scientists and technical feed innovation from cassava peel (in conjunction with Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation and International Livestock Research Institute).
