Prof. Joshua O. Ogendo is an Associate Professor of Crop Protection (Stored Products Entomology) and Dean, Faculty of Agriculture (Oct 2014 to Present), Egerton University. Prof. Ogendo holds PhD degree in Agronomy (Crop Protection) from Egerton University (2008), MSc degrees in Agronomy and Grain Storage Management from University of Nairobi (Kenya; 1992) and University of Greenwich (UK; 2001), respectively and a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture from University of Nairobi, Kenya (1988). Prof Ogendo has wealth of experience in participatory adaptive research and consultancy services focusing on bio-intensive pest management, enhanced food and nutrition security and livelihoods in smallholder agriculture. Over the past decade, Prof Ogendo has found niche in bio-prospecting for botanical pesticides for bio-control of pre- and post-harvest insect pests of staple food crops. In the recent years (2009-2017), he has widened his research and consultancy domain to span underutilized crops (cassava, sweet potatoes, sorghum, and indigenous vegetables), climate change and agro-biodiversity. He has been Principal Investigator (PI) of nine research and community grants (Value: USD 2,615,715.00) and a collaborating scientist in eleven (12) research grants (Value: USD 1,195,000.00) (Total value of grants: USD 3,810,715.00). The above stated grants/projects were funded by Rockefeller Foundation, CIAT/ECABREN, AICAD, USAID, VicRes, African Union, EAAPP/World Bank, KAPAP/World Bank, RUFORUM, Global Center for Food Systems Innovation (GCFSI), Michigan State University and Austrian Development Cooperation, in agronomy and related disciplines with particular focus on botanical pesticides, climate change water related vulnerabilities, neglected crops (e.g. cassava, sorghum) and agro biodiversity. As the Dean, Faculty Prof Ogendo has provided the requisite leadership that has seen Egerton University win two grand grants totalling USD 12.24 Million. The grants include the World Bank supported Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Agriculture and Agribusiness Management (CESAAM) in Eastern and Southern Africa (Funding to EgU: USD 6 million over 5 years; 2016-2021) and The MasterCard Foundation funded project titled “Transforming African Agricultural Universities to meaningfully contribute to Africa’s growth and development (TAGDev)” (Total funding: USD 27.4 Million; EgU direct funding: USD 6.24 million; over 8 years: 2016-2024). The two projects will offer 55, 115 and 30 BSc, MSc and PhD full scholarships tenable at Egerton University; internships, regional staff and student exchanges, research funding for EgU staff and institutional capacity building (2 vehicles- van, 4WD d/cab; lab equipment). In addition to the aforementioned, Prof Ogendo formed a team that submitted a full proposal to African Development Bank / MoHEST expected to offer 100 MSc and 50 PhD full scholarships fortraining of existing staff in universities and other tertiary institutions in the field of Livestock and Agricultural Biosciences (Budget: USD 3.45 million for 3 years). He has successfully negotiated MoUs with Counties of Vihiga and Homa Bay for capacity building of youth and women on agribusiness and value addition. Prof Ogendo is a prolific scholar with 31 scientific publications in refereed journals, two (2) book chapters, one (1) book editorial, six (6) consultancies; five (5) outreach / extension publications / project reports, thirty seven (37) refereed conference papers and member of nine (9) professional bodies. He is currently the Interim Chair, Pesticidal Plant Technologies Network (PEPTEN), a recently registered national NGO and member of six (6) professional associations. He has successfully supervised five (5) MSc and one (1) PhD students and currently supervising 2 MSc and 3 PhD student thesis researches in agronomy (crop production, crop protection, plant breeding and weed science), horticulture and agriculture and rural innovation studies. In addition to his professional call, Prof Ogendo is currently the Coordinator, Chuth Ber Dispensary; Chairman, BOM, Akwakra Mixed Secondary School; Member, BOM, Mawego Girls Secondary School (w.e.f. Feb. 2016) and Patron, Akwakra Primary School all in Rachuonyo North District, Homa Bay County.
