Cassava Research Technician (Current Employee) –  Ibadan, Oyo StateFebruary 16, 2019
•Participate in harvesting of cassava field experiments and assist in research data collection and entry also Organize and supervise the daily rated staff;later Use the Chroma meter to determine the color intensity, total carotene and dry matter content of cassava mash;
•Take photograph of cassava tuber for picture analysis of root size and shape.
Management is superb and coordinated because you know what to do from the start of the week.
The hardest part of the work is not been biased with the sample selection but am used to it because i have gathered alot work experience..
The most enjoyable part of the work is scanning cassava samples with the chromameter to detect the color and have an idea of the dry matter.
