How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Trainer and researcher in agricultural smallholder sector, with particular experience on legumes value chain in Africa. Passionate about plant pathology especially mycotoxin management of various grain crops such as groundnuts and maize. Great zeal and interest in coming up with various technologies to assist farmers in management of aflatoxins in order to achieve food safety and improve export of crops especially groundnuts to higher value chains. Groundnut value chain development: Experienced in designing, developing and managing long term groundnut value chain programmes specifically with small farmer set ups. Gained high level of expertise in managing international development projects (DFID projects, USAID projects). Experienced in developing holistic approach on agricultural
Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) is one of the most important legume crop in Mozambique which is grown for food as well as cash. It's an indeterminate growth habit and below the ground nature of fruiting makes it difficult to determine the time of optimal maturity of pods. This results in reduced crop yields if either harvested too early or too late...
The production and utilization of groundnut (Arachis hypogea L) has increased tremendously across all provinces of Mozambique in recent times. However, the presence of mycotoxins, especially aflatoxins has remained a critical food concern in both the human and livestock diet. In this study, the effect of harvesting time and drying methods on aflato...
This is part of my PhD research work on macadamia production in Malawi.
Macadamia is an essential commodity crop in Malawi. The nuts are a lucrative commodity and are used for household consumption, income generation among farming families and as a foreign exchange earning crop at country-level. Macadamia production in Malawi has increased significantly in recent years. Malawi is the seventh top producer of macadamia n...
Climate change is altering suitable areas of crop species worldwide, with cascading effects on people reliant upon those crop species as food sources and for income generation. Macadamia is one of Malawi’s most important and profitable crop species; however, climate change threatens its production. Thus, this study’s objective is to quantitatively...
Climate change is altering suitable areas of crop species worldwide, with cascading effects on people and animals reliant upon those crop species as food sources. Macadamia is one of Malawi's most important and profitable crop species. Here, we used an ensemble model approach to determine the current distribution of macadamia producing areas across...
Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) is the third most important crop in Mozambique. Despite its importance as food, the presence of mycotoxins, especially aflatoxins has the potential to limit its use in both the human and livestock diet. In this study, the effect of time of harvesting on aflatoxin (AF) contamination were examined at two locations in N...
