Through the NSU's R & D, we contribute significantly to improving the livelihood and welfare of resource-poor farmers in the developing world.

Fifty years of field research and teaching experience in alternative methods of agricultural production for both irrigated and rainfed farming systems. Extensive work done in the tropics and subtropics, developing appropriate crop production systems with applications to small farms. Familiar with many agronomic and horticultural crops. Field research and production experience on agronomic crops including rice, maize, sorghum, wheat, rye, barley and oats; tropical and temperate legumes including mungbeans, cowpeas, pigeonpeas, peanuts, soybeans, clover, vetches and alfalfa; root and tuber crops such as cassava and sweet potato; and a variety of tropical and temperate vegetable crops including herbs, spices, medicinal plants and indigenous vegetables.

Experienced in extension, introducing new cropping techniques for maximizing production and maintaining soil fertility and productivity. Experienced in on-farm research, developing, designing and testing improved technologies for rapid transfer and adoption by resource-limited farmers. Extensive on-farm research work done in Asia on rice-based cropping systems and sustainable vegetable production systems; and in West Africa on mixed cropping under shifting cultivation, bush-fallow farming systems, agroforestry and alley cropping, rice-based cropping systems in inland valley swamps and low resource upland rice production systems. Twenty years research and development experience on horticultural crop production (fruits and vegetables); and farming systems in small island nations in Eastern Caribbean Basin. Three years experience in Pacific Island nations – Solomon Islands.

Experienced in teaching college and graduate level courses in plant science, agronomy, horticulture and soil science. Conducted training courses in crop production, multiple cropping, cropping systems, on-farm research and extension, sustainable agriculture and organic farming.


Visited and observed agriculture and farming systems in more than 45 countries. Also worked either on short or long term assignments in some of these countries including Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belgium, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cameroon, Canada, Chad, China, Dominican Republic, Fiji, Ghana, Grenada, Guinea, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Jamaica, Japan, Kenya, Korea, Lao PDR, Liberia, Malaysia, Mali, Martinique, Mexico, Niger, Nigeria, Philippines, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Somalia, Solomon Islands, St. Lucia, Taiwan, Tanzania, Thailand, Trinidad, Uganda, Vietnam and Zaire. Twenty years working experience in the Philippines, seven years in North Florida and Pennsylvania, six years in West Africa (Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Liberia), three months in East Africa (Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, Tanzania, Uganda), thirteen years in the Caribbean (Virgin Islands) and eight years in Taiwan.
