Angela Obiageli Eni has a flair for languages and besides English, she can speak Hausa, Igbo, and Yoruba. “This is such a good thing when you are out in the field working with farmers,” she says. Eni has used these skills to communicate with farmers while carrying out field surveys on tuber crops in the West African region.
I would like to see my research contribute to increased productivity for smallholder farmers to ensure that they can sell their surplus and meet other needs.
Field of Research
The virus symptoms are usually on the leaves, causing discoloration and insufficient photosynthesis. This means that the amount of food that is produced for storage is less, resulting in tuber yield losses.
