CRIN Organises Cashew Grafting Training for Staff

The Institute organised a training program on cashew grafting for staff from June 5th to 9th, 2023 at the Nursery section. The attendance cut across scientists, trainees and expert grafters. The training session kick-started with theoretical exposition on the cashew tree, usefulness, best method of planting and the detailed aspects of grafting. A practical demonstration of the grafting process was followed by hands-on experience in collecting budwood from cashew trees. The trainee grafters were then divided into four groups for interactive grafting sessions. Among the attendees were Dr. Sunday Agbeniyi (Director Research Operations), Dr. Moses Ogunlade (Director Production and Substations). The resource persons that anchored the training were Dr. O.S. Ibiremo (Director Planning), Dr. O.O. Adeigbe (Cashew Programme Leader) and Dr. F.O. Olasupo.
