DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE ECONOMICS AND EXTENSION

HISTORY OF THE DEPARTMENT

The Department of Agricultural Economics and Extension comprising of Agricultural Economics & Farm Management and Agricultural Extension & Rural Development came into being at the inception of the University in November 2002 with 14 students. Two foundation members of staff were employed to coordinate the affairs of the foundation departments. In 2005, the merger of the erstwhile department was effected to form the department of Agricultural Economics and Extension and a Professor was employed to coordinate the activities of the Department along with senior lecturer on sabbatical. In 2006 three other academic staff was recruited. In 2007, a Reader was employed to coordinate the affairs of the Department along with a senior lecturer. There has therefore been a significant increase in the staff strength of the department. In 2014, the Department replicated herself by appointing one of her graduates into the position of Assistant Lecturer. A member of staff won the AFRONET research grant and another one secured the AERC research grant, and Netherlands Fellowship Programme to attend short courses. Furthermore, there has been significant growth in facilities with the establishment of the Home Economics Laboratory and Audio visual studio. The department is currently occupying her permanent building with up-to-date facilities and modern office equipment. To date the Department has graduated about 180 students. The postgraduate studies of the department have been fully established and have graduated her first set of students.

ACTIVITIES OF THE DEPARTMENT

SASAKAWA AFRICA FUND FOR EXTENSION EDUCATION: HIIGHLIGHTS OF NEEDS ASSESSMENT AND STAKEHOLDERS MEETING HELD AT FACULTY OF AGRICULTURE, BOWEN UNIVERSITY, IWO ON DECEMBER 6TH, 2018

The meeting which was coordinated by Miss Oluyinka Oroniran commenced by 10:30 hours with greetings and opening prayer said by Dr. Babatunde Olunlade. The special guests were then invited to the high table with proper recognition; among them is the Olupo of Oluponna, Oba Oyeleso Oyebamiji. Thereafter, Dr. A. Ayandiji (Head of Department, Agricultural Economics and Extension) gave the opening speech tagged “Why are we here?” He spoke on the reasons for the gathering stating that one of the ways to better our nation is agriculture and there is need to re-orientate the stakeholders on some salient issues. Also, we are here to educate us on what we need as farmers and to help the farmers on some challenges they are facing. He stated expressly that we are not here to distribute money but to help the agricultural system this locality.

The Dean, Faculty of Agriculture in person of Dr. (Mrs) Foluke Aderemi gave the welcome address. She started by welcoming and salutes all participants for their kind gesture in gracing the meeting most especially the Olupo of Oluponna, Oba Oyeleso Oyebamiji. The background knowledge of the state of farmers was re-iterated, bringing it to remembrance that it is in a worse state and the farmers are known for poor standard living which is against normalcy. Special programmes like the ones operated here contribute nothing to life if they are only printed on paper and not put into practice. She made it known that Sasakawa is a philanthropist that seeks after the welfare of Africa and purposed in his mind to alleviate the poor state in which we find ourselves. He collaborated with some individuals to establish this programme and Bowen is one of the beneficiaries. A gathering like this is crucial to expose farmers to what is needed.

The Vice-chancellor ably represented by the Deputy Vice-chancellor, Prof. J. A. Akande brought greetings from the Vice-chancellor, he appreciated the massive turnout of the farmers, and he also gave a warm welcome to Olupo of Oluponna. He briefly iterated other importance of Sasakawa and also the reason for the gathering which is to learn more on how to improve farming system and to rub minds together. Prof. Akande said, the farmers are expected to present the challenges they are faced with and our responsibility as Sasakawa is to provide solutions to the challenges.

The Royal father of the day, the Olupo of Oluponna, Oba Oyeleso Oyebamiji also gave his welcome address. He congratulated the participants for being part of this educating programme. He said agriculture has gone beyond classroom this days and everyone should integrate into the opportunity available.

Dr. Seyi Ayoola representing the Director of Research brought words from the director. He also talked briefly on Sasakawa programme iterating its benefits to both the farmers and the institution. He admonishes the farmers to embrace this golden opportunity which will contribute immensely to their farming practices. The chairman of Sasakawa-Bowen Committee, Prof. A. R. Omolehin welcomed all to the meeting and discussed extensively on the need for this Sasakawa programmes and how the local farmers will really benefit from the propose project. He discussed how Sasakawa came into existence which was pioneered in Nigeria at Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. He rounded off his speech by explaining the reason by Bowen University is adopting the programme as well.

The West Africa Coordinator of Sasakawa Africa Fund for Extension Education (SAFE), Prof. O. I. Oladele enlightened us on the origin of how the initiative came into existence worldwide and how it started in Nigeria (in the Northern part of the country to be specific). He discussed on Sasakawa’s mission to Nigeria, the problems facing the farmers and the benefits of the programme to the farmers.

The keynote speaker, Prof. Tunji Arokoyo (International Consultant, Agriculture and Rural Development Educate) gave an educative speech on “The Sasakawa Africa Fund for Extension (SAFE) and Human Capacity Development for Effective Agricultural Extension and Advisory Service (AEAS) for National Food Security”. He enumerated and extensively discussed the likely problems that will be addressed by the proposed programme;

  • Low productivity
  • Climate change and soil degradation
  • Policy environment
  • Poor market orientation

He made mention on how the Faculty should design a good curriculum for the programme. In his speech, likely challenges that Sasakawa participants could face were discussed. They are;

  • The old school boy mentality
  • The NUC pre-entry qualification requirement
  • High take-off investment
  • Potential students challenges for time-off

The Olupo of Oluponna came back on the stage to give his speech for the day. He gave expository speech on importance of Agriculture and its practices taking examples from his agricultural background and experiences. He concluded by enjoying all to embrace agriculture taking full advantage of the new programme (Sasakawa) to improve farming knowledge.

Then, the participants were divided into four groups for interaction to come up with the needs for each group;

  1. The farmers group was allowed to suggest a mandate crop to be focused on by Sasakawa Foundation, Bowen University Chapter. When threw open, crops like cocoa, cassava, plantain, oil-palm, yam, maize and vegetables were mentioned. After much deliberations and deep explanations, they narrowed their choice to Root and Tuber (Yam and Cassava).
  2. The potential candidate group preferred weekend or sandwich programme, this is due to their work schedule which is less busy at weekends.
  3. Input suppliers, agro-based dealers, marketers and other agricultural value chain actors group advocated for adequate training for the existing pool of potential candidates i.e. ND/HND certificate holders, NCE in Agricultural Education, general workers and non-governmental agencies. Also, extension services on value addition, agribusiness and family nutrition was advocated for.
  4. Institutional representatives, community leaders and policy makers group hinted that the government at this time is not proactive in funding extension work, therefore relying on institutional funding may be tragic. It was agreed that the degree certificate to be acquired will be recognized by institutions in promoting the extension staff. The mobile phone applications are recognized as one of the most versatile tool in the dissemination of extension services due to its wider reach and speed.

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT AND CROP PRODUCTION

HISTORY OF THE DEPARTMENT

The Department of Environmental Management and Crop Production came into existence by July, 2005 when the University senate approved merges f the department of Crop Production and Soil Management with the Department of Environmental and Resource Technology for administrative convenience and efficiency. Two distict programme emerged from the merger and these are:

  1. The Crop Production and soil management CRP Programme and
  2. The forestry and Environmental Technology FET programme

The Crop Production and soil management CRP Programme was established on the 4th of November, 2002 as one of the major units of the Faculty of Agriculture. It is a 5 years programme with a lot of field work throughout its duration. The programme offers a wide range of courses both to its students and other programme in the faculty of Agriculture as it cuts across soil management, Crop and forage production, and post-harvest handlings. Specialization in the department begins after the 400 Level internship training during which the students are exposed to practical skills.

The Forestry and Environmental Technology (FET) programme originally started as Forestry and Wood Technology Programme in 2002, later metamorphosed to Environmental and Resource Technology ERT programme with the approval of University Senate by 2004 to harness inherent capability of the staff and possibly attract greater student enrolment. Sequel to the advice of the NUC accreditation team in 2005, the University senate approved the present name of the programme ‘Forestry and Environmental Technology. This is a development-oriented programme aimed at training graduates in forest products and environmental impacts of forestry. Designed as a 4 or 5 year programme (depending on the mode of entry of students) with general agriculture practical/ field work at the first two years. The specialization process begins at the 3000 level while the 400 level is devoted to specialized practical internship to help the students put into practice what they have learnt; learn new things and perhaps from the genesis of entrepreneurial skills and connections that may lead to employment after graduation. 

Introduction

The Department of Environmental Management and Crop Production offers two undergraduate degree options: (i) Crop Production and Soil Management (CRP) AND (ii) Forestry and Environmental Technology (FET). Also, it has two M. Sc and Ph.D. postgraduate programmes:    (i) Crop Protection and (ii) Environmental Management Control.
