Area of Specialization:  Agronomy (Climate Adaptation/Mitigation)
and Crop Physiology
Research Interests:  To improve understanding of plant responses to the environment with a focus on soil–plant–water relationships and climate smart agriculture for crop production and environmental quality priorities. My research also focuses on soil nutrient management and water use efficiency in cropping systems.

Dr. Stephen Yeboah obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture (First Class Honors) from University of Education, Winneba, in 2005, a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Agronomy from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in 2010 and Doctor of Philosophy in Agroecology at Gansu Agricultural University in 2017.  In 2011, he was appointed as a Research Scientist in CSIR–Crops Research Institute, Kumasi–Ghana. Stephen has conducted extensive research in the areas of crop resource management, environmental and soil nutrient management on a variety of crops. He has developed a number of technologies which have improved the livelihoods of resource-poor farmers. His research priority is to improve understanding of plant responses to the environment with a focus on field, theoretical and laboratory research towards increasing understanding of the soil–plant–water relationships and mitigate effects of climate change on crop production and environmental quality. He has refereed several papers for both local and international scientific journals, and has over forty (40) refereed journal publications in science listed, international and African Journals.
