Kwadwo is pursuing a Master’s degree in Agricultural Economics at Texas A&M University. He is a research assistant to Dr. Fred Boadu in a ConDev project titled “Sustained No-till Adoption in Agro-Ecosystems of Ghana: A Profile of Farmers and their Fields“. Kwadwo is from Ghana and had his Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in 2010. After graduating he taught as an economics tutor in a senior high school as part of a mandatory national service for a year. Before arriving at A&M in January 2013, Kwadwo worked with Dr. Kofi Boa, Director of the Center for No-Till Agriculture in Ghana, on the “Sustainable Soil Management for Improved Food Security in Ghana Research Project” (Ghaha Sustainable Ag). His work was to assist in the research as well as collect and manage the data. Again he worked hand in hand with Dr. Boa in the initial stages in establishing the no-till center in Ghana which is to teach local farmers, extension officers and college students to learn and appreciate the system.
