Delphina Peter Mamiro is dedicated to using integrated pest-management (IPM) methods to make a measurable difference in her community. She is convinced that IPM technologies will enable rural women farmers to produce oyster mushrooms in order to improve their household nutrition and generate income for their families.
Agriculture was a part of me even in primary school,” recalls Mamiro, who spent a lot of time as a child planting gardens, tilling, and weeding. She entered SUA directly after high school, earning a BSc in Agriculture.
Field of Research
Sustainable alternative integrated pest-management methods to reduce the cost of crop protection; production of safer (minimum chemical/mycotoxin levels) food and introduction of new crops and biotechnology (mushrooms, sunflowers, onions, tomatoes) for agricultural diversification to combat climate-change challenges and alleviate poverty in rural farming communities.
