Dr Adenuga is a Senior Agricultural Economist in the Agri-food and Biosciences Institute (AFBI). His current research focuses on Land Economics and on measuring the economic and environmental impact of agricultural policies including their effect on the welfare and livelihood of farming households. Through his research, he provides insights into factors that influence sustainable agricultural practices among farming households and has a keen interest in understanding those factors which impact on the behaviours and actions of farming households in relation to improving farm-level productivity. Before joining AFBI, he worked as a lecturer in the Department of Agricultural Economics and Farm Management, University of Ilorin, Nigeria. He obtained his PhD in Agricultural and Food Economics from Queen’s University Belfast, UK and holds an MSc in agricultural Economics and B. Agric.
