SUMMARY

I am a proactive and highly motivated crop scientist, who has recently enrolled in PhD in Crop Science (horticulture stream) in Botswana University of Agriculture and Natural Resources. At an early stage of my childhood, I got inspired to pursue my career around farming industry. My parents were farmers and owned a small-scaled milling company. Both my undergraduate and graduate studies were on crop science, instilling a great passion to contribute to the national food security, sustainable agriculture development and achievement of my country’s national sustainable development goals, hence the world at large. Climatic instability and the rapid world population increment have propelled me to desire to become a professional agricultural researcher, who will assist with solutions to alleviate hunger and starvation in my country. Not forgetting the current global problem posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has shown the necessity to locally produce goods as closure of boarders is unpredictable. My research interests are on the development of heat and drought tolerant crops such as Safflower, maximised agricultural production though use of modernised technologies such as controlled growing environments. My current research will aim at determining the effects of temperature and growing stages on growth and development of safflower. This research will inform farmers about the critical temperature which causes chilling injury in safflower and the growth stage which is most hit. Hence farmers will adjust their time of planting to avoid losses associated with chilling injury.

Goal oriented and persistence are key aspects that defines who I am. I also always ensure that I successfully do my duties on the stipulated time frame. Accountability for my research work is also one of my abilities. I always make sure that I am committed to what I do with minimal supervision. Lastly, but not all, I can structure and organise my ideas (writing skills) in a meaningful way. The above gives me the confidence that I will diligently complete my PhD programme

Manahil Eldow Ali Elsanosy is a Sudanese, lives in Umrawaba Locality, North Kordofan State, Sudan. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Animal production from Faculty of Natural Resources and Environmental Studies, University of Kordofan, Sudan. She is working in the Department of Production and Economic Resources Management in Umrawaba locality. Currently, she is awarded a Scholarship by Regional University Forum for Capacity Building in Agricultural (RUFORUM) under RUFORUM Community Action Research Program (CARP+): Management of Natural Resource in Dry lands, pursuing a Master of Science in Animal Production at University of Kordofan. Her research title is on “Evaluation of Cows’ Dung as a source of alternative energy in rural communities in North Kordofan State”. The state has a huge number of the livestock and a big amount of waste, therefore the research aims at convert the cow’s dung to alternative and clean energies through Biogas Technology. She has a dream to contribute to farmers’ development

Ibrahim Bakri Elnour (Sudanese) was born in 1995 and grew up in West Kordofan State, Sudan. He obtained a Bachler degree from Faculty of Natural Resources & Environmental Studies, University of Kordofan, and graduated with First class majoring Agricultural Economics & Rural Development. Currently he is a beneficiary of Regional University Forum for Capacity Building in Agricultural (RUFORUM) Scholarship under RUFORUM Community Action Research Program (CARP+) at University of Kordofan, pursuing a Master of Science in Agricultural Economics and Rural Development on “Effectiveness of natural resources management in traditional rain fed subsector: Value Chain analysis of some field crops in north Kordofan State”. This study will provide farmers with information regarding the crops marketing and strategies to increase their competitive advantage along the value chain as well as the difference in gross margins obtained from individual and group sales of product.
