Born in 1984, Codjo Emile AGBANGBA is an Agronomist Engineer (2008) and has a M.Sc. degree (2012) and a PhD in Agroforestry, Ecology, Adaptation (2016) at the University Cheikh Anta Diop of Dakar (Senegal) with focus on Soil Science and Plant Nutrition. Previous researches of Emile focused mainly on the parameterization of DRIS model to diagnosis soil fertility for some important crops in Benin (Pineapple, cotton, sorghum, yam and groundnut). He is a member of the West African Researcher Association and he is implicated in numerous collaborative researches in Dakar (Senegal) and in Benin.
