Research Interest

Soil infertility and degradation has been a major constrain militating against food productivity in Southeastern Nigeria.  Dr. Onwudike Stanley (specialist in soil fertility and fertilizer Technology) has over the years been researching on ways of improving the fertility and productivity of a degraded Ultisol. This he has done by evaluating the efficacy of different solid wastes of both plant and animal origin on soil physicochemical properties and growth performances of some tropical crops. He has also examined the impact of organic wastes on the mitigation of climate change through carbon sequestration. Currently Dr Onwudike is evaluating the effect of tree plantations the soil fertility, carbon sequestration and macronutrient dynamics.   He is an active member of many societal organizations (National and International) as well as member of a research team of Soil Science and Technology, Federal University of Technology Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria.
