Designation: Professor

Research Focus: Agribusiness

 

Professional Experience:

My research contributes to knowledge may be grouped into three: Marketing, Gender Issues and Welfare Economics. The issue of prices at both rural and urban markets have been tackled in every season. Gender is a signal for women's studies but it refers to the gender roles of men, women, boys and girls. It further led to research interest on Commercialization while the focus on welfare has been geared towards the wellbeing of rural dwellers. The ongoing research therefore has focused on the reasons why farmers have not been able to go into full commercialization.

I have been a scholar in land economics from my Bachelor Degree to PhD level. I have worked on different thesis titles on land tenure, land market, land conflicts, and land economics and governance. I have also attended policy debates on land governance (markets and conflicts in relation to policy formulation)) organised by IFPRI in Nigeria. I am keenly interested in land tenure, conflicts and governance issues in Nigeria and I have had publications to this effect. I expect my research efforts to translate to being more effective in contributing to development issues in land in Nigeria, Africa, and the world. and to enhance my potential to contribute to further advancement of land system science at global level. These will also position me better to teach, supervise, and bring up the next generation of Land Economists.

The various livelihood activities that are found in relation to land use, land distribution and land use change due to urbanisation. This is also to better establish the need for land policies that will engender livelihood activities and agribusiness among rural people and especially, youths, to reduce unemployment and to enhance the economy diversification bid of Nigerian government.

Research Focus: My research focus has been in utilizing physiological and biochemical tools such as haematology, serum biochemical assays, histology, and neuroendocrinology to investigate acceptable thresholds of inclusion of anti-nutrients in feed materials (most especially alkaloids) into animal feed formulation. Research into potentials of extracts from selected botanicals as semen extension materials for porcine, caprine and poultry. Extracts of selected botanicals (Ocimum gratissimum, Vernonia amygdalina, Azadirachta indica), vegetables (watermelon and Lycopersicon esculentum) and spices (Allium sativum and Ginger zingiber) are being investigated for their antibiotic, antioxidant and buffering capabilities, by evaluating their effects, on semen quality and spermatozoa fertilizing potentials. Results so far suggests the possibility of utilizing these materials as alternative sources to conventional extension materials. Investigation is also on-going to correlate appropriate and easily reproducible in vitro techniques available for evaluating the fertilizing ability of extended spermatozoa and actual in vivo results.

Professional Experience

Olubode, Oluseun Sunday, a Watson International Scholar of the Environment (Brown University, USA) holds a doctorate degree in Plant Ecology and a Master degree in Environmental Biology. He is a Senior lecturer at the University of Ibadan. He has conducted various studies and environmental assessments (including several EIA, EES and ESIA) across various ecologies in Nigeria. He is a species and ecosystem conservation expert, and has successfully led and also participated in conservation of a National Park (Marguba Range of Old Oyo National Park and environs) and Forest Reserves (Olokemeji Forest Reserve and Onigambari Forest Reserve in Ogun and Oyo States Respectively). Since 2003, he has been well involved in various components of funded conservation studies of the Nigerian endemic monkey (Sclater’s guenon – Cercopithecus sclateri) in the highly degraded forests of southeast and Niger Delta regions of Nigeria in terms of species demographic attributes, habitat characteristics, human-monkey relations, environmental threats and traditional institution that support and could enhance the monkey’s conservation. He is currently collaborating on a Cambridge University sponsored agroecological research in selected farming communities in Ibadan. He has supervised 15 B.Sc., 19 M.Sc. 1 M. Phil and 3 Ph.D. students.

He is versed and has conducted published studies environmental biology of crops from the viewpoints of crop protection (weed management and vertebrate pest management) and conservation of biota for improved crop production. He currently leads a team to develop a proposal for Zero Oil economy initiative of the current administration. His research further encourages biodiversity conservation (species and ecosystem) within the working spaces of arable farmlands (and where necessary, laboratory assays) on the one hand and fragile wetland areas on the other. Thus, the scope of his research covers protected and unprotected spaces across various vegetation and agroecologies in Nigeria, especially the southern guinea savannah, derived savannah, lowland rainforests and mangrove swamps.

In the area of crop protection, his research centers mainly on understanding the floristic relationships of crops and weeds, and other plants of interest. He focuses on profiling the relationship of crops to weeds so as to explore safe and environmentally friendly management of crops. In so doing, the above-ground flora and soil seed banks are studied. The crops that are mainly considered include staples such as African indigenous vegetables, cowpea and cereals, which contribute significantly to food security in resource poor, small-holder farmers in low-income countries, such as Nigeria.

Dr. Olubode, Oluseun Sunday is a well published and awarded plant Ecologist/Environmental Biologist. He consistently facilitates trainings, discussions and workshops on the environment and Environmental Assessments. He holds two (2020 and 2021) Special Awards from Environmental Health Students’ Association of the Faculty of Public Health, University of Ibadan. He is a member of prestigious national and international learned societies, including Society for Conservation Biology, International Association for Ecology (INTECOL), Ecological Society of Nigeria, Nigerian Society for Plant Protection, among others. He is a volunteer Technical Director for Afruitful Environment Limited, a benefactor of the Department of the Department of Crop Protection and Environmental Biology, University of Ibadan, Nigeria.

Research Focus: Agribusiness

 

Professional Experience:

My research contributes to knowledge may be grouped into three: Marketing, Gender Issues and Welfare Economics. The issue of prices at both rural and urban markets have been tackled in every season. Gender is a signal for women's studies but it refers to the gender roles of men, women, boys and girls. It further led to research interest on Commercialization while the focus on welfare has been geared towards the wellbeing of rural dwellers. The ongoing research therefore has focused on the reasons why farmers have not been able to go into full commercialization.

Professional Experience

I am a scholar in Agribusiness Management and Land Economics. I have taught courses in these areas, and supervised students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. I teach in Supply Chain Management at Masters Professional level in the Department of Industrial and Production Engineering in UI and MBA (Agribusiness) Professional at University of Ibadan and Leadcity University, Ibadan.

I have been a scholar in land economics from my Bachelor Degree to PhD level. I have worked on different thesis titles on land tenure, land market, land conflicts, and land economics and governance. I have also attended policy debates on land governance (markets and conflicts in relation to policy formulation)) organised by IFPRI in Nigeria. I am keenly interested in land tenure, conflicts and governance issues in Nigeria and I have had publications to this effect. I expect my research efforts to translate to being more effective in contributing to development issues in land in Nigeria, Africa, and the world. and to enhance my potential to contribute to further advancement of land system science at global level. These will also position me better to teach, supervise, and bring up the next generation of Land Economists. I also work on land tenure and land access in relation to agribusiness and entrepreneurship. The various livelihood activities that are found in relation to land use, land distribution and land use change due to urbanisation. This is also to better establish the need for land policies that will engender livelihood activities and agribusiness among rural people and especially, youths, to reduce unemployment and to enhance the economy diversification bid of Nigerian government.

Research Focus: My research focus has been in utilizing physiological and biochemical tools such as haematology, serum biochemical assays, histology, and neuroendocrinology to investigate acceptable thresholds of inclusion of anti-nutrients in feed materials (most especially alkaloids) into animal feed formulation. Research into potentials of extracts from selected botanicals as semen extension materials for porcine, caprine and poultry. Extracts of selected botanicals (Ocimum gratissimum, Vernonia amygdalina, Azadirachta indica), vegetables (watermelon and Lycopersicon esculentum) and spices (Allium sativum and Ginger zingiber) are being investigated for their antibiotic, antioxidant and buffering capabilities, by evaluating their effects, on semen quality and spermatozoa fertilizing potentials. Results so far suggests the possibility of utilizing these materials as alternative sources to conventional extension materials. Investigation is also on-going to correlate appropriate and easily reproducible in vitro techniques available for evaluating the fertilizing ability of extended spermatozoa and actual in vivo results.

Professional Experience

Olubode, Oluseun Sunday, a Watson International Scholar of the Environment (Brown University, USA) holds a doctorate degree in Plant Ecology and a Master degree in Environmental Biology. He is a Senior lecturer at the University of Ibadan. He has conducted various studies and environmental assessments (including several EIA, EES and ESIA) across various ecologies in Nigeria. He is a species and ecosystem conservation expert, and has successfully led and also participated in conservation of a National Park (Marguba Range of Old Oyo National Park and environs) and Forest Reserves (Olokemeji Forest Reserve and Onigambari Forest Reserve in Ogun and Oyo States Respectively). Since 2003, he has been well involved in various components of funded conservation studies of the Nigerian endemic monkey (Sclater’s guenon – Cercopithecus sclateri) in the highly degraded forests of southeast and Niger Delta regions of Nigeria in terms of species demographic attributes, habitat characteristics, human-monkey relations, environmental threats and traditional institution that support and could enhance the monkey’s conservation. He is currently collaborating on a Cambridge University sponsored agroecological research in selected farming communities in Ibadan. He has supervised 15 B.Sc., 19 M.Sc. 1 M. Phil and 3 Ph.D. students.

He is versed and has conducted published studies environmental biology of crops from the viewpoints of crop protection (weed management and vertebrate pest management) and conservation of biota for improved crop production. He currently leads a team to develop a proposal for Zero Oil economy initiative of the current administration. His research further encourages biodiversity conservation (species and ecosystem) within the working spaces of arable farmlands (and where necessary, laboratory assays) on the one hand and fragile wetland areas on the other. Thus, the scope of his research covers protected and unprotected spaces across various vegetation and agroecologies in Nigeria, especially the southern guinea savannah, derived savannah, lowland rainforests and mangrove swamps.

In the area of crop protection, his research centers mainly on understanding the floristic relationships of crops and weeds, and other plants of interest. He focuses on profiling the relationship of crops to weeds so as to explore safe and environmentally friendly management of crops. In so doing, the above-ground flora and soil seed banks are studied. The crops that are mainly considered include staples such as African indigenous vegetables, cowpea and cereals, which contribute significantly to food security in resource poor, small-holder farmers in low-income countries, such as Nigeria.

Dr. Olubode, Oluseun Sunday is a well published and awarded plant Ecologist/Environmental Biologist. He consistently facilitates trainings, discussions and workshops on the environment and Environmental Assessments. He holds two (2020 and 2021) Special Awards from Environmental Health Students’ Association of the Faculty of Public Health, University of Ibadan. He is a member of prestigious national and international learned societies, including Society for Conservation Biology, International Association for Ecology (INTECOL), Ecological Society of Nigeria, Nigerian Society for Plant Protection, among others. He is a volunteer Technical Director for Afruitful Environment Limited, a benefactor of the Department of the Department of Crop Protection and Environmental Biology, University of Ibadan, Nigeria.
