FUNAAB to Set Up App-developing Unit

The Vice Chancellor, Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Prof. Kolawole Salako, has disclosed plans by the institution to create a unit for developing agricultural applications on the internet.

He made this known while addressing participants of the In-Person Capacity Building Training of the African Cassava Agronomy Initiative (ACAI), under the aegis of the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), during the training titled “Data Analysis Using R-Statistics”.

Salako, who is a fellow of the Soil Science Society of Nigeria (FSSSN) and the pioneer Southwest coordinator of ACAI, called for the review of extension activities because they were becoming boring.

He stressed that extension services should be directed at development and urged participants to visit FUNAAB as part of the training programme.

The Vice-Chancellor said that the training was designed for national agricultural research partners of ACAI and IITA.

He added that the development of agricultural applications on the internet would greatly support farmers in their day-to-day activities.

The event was honoured by the Southwest Coordinator of ACAI, Dr. Mutiu Busari and officials from FUNAAB and IITA.
