SCIENTIFIC SUPPORT GROUP

The Scientific Support Group (SSG) is made up of Agronomists, Soil Scientists, Agrometeorologist, Entomologists, Plant Breeders and Plant Pathologist whose objectives include conducting on-station investigations to find solutions to problems encountered on farmers’ fields. Such problems, under normal circumstances, do not lend themselves easily amenable at the farmers’ level. Members of the group when necessary work in collaboration with the Farming Systems Research Groups on-farm to monitor and evaluate new technologies being assessed on the farmers’ fields.
