Department of Crop and Soil Science

joseph.abiodun@lmu.edu.ng

A native of Arandun in Kwara State, Nigeria, Abiodun Joseph obtained a Bachelor of Agriculture (B. Agric.) degree from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. He proceeded to University of Ibadan where he obtained a Masters degree in Crop Protection (Entomology/Plant Pathology) in 2002. He bagged a doctorate degree (PhD) in Plant Pathology/Virology from the Federal University of Technology, Akure in 2011. He has been in the academics since 2001.

Dr Joseph has worked in diverse areas of plant diseases, including Rice Yellow Mottle Virus (RYMV), a lethal disease of rice capable of leading the staple cereal to verge of extinction in African continent. He has won several awards and honours including Africa Rice Center Fellowship, Chemical and Allied Products Limited (CAPL) Scholarship and Federal Government of Nigeria Postgraduate Scholarship. He is a currently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Crop and Soil Science in Landmark University, Omu-Aran, Kwara State.
