Short Profile

Prof. O. B. Kehinde obtained the B. Sc (Agricultural Biology) from the University of Ibadan in 1987 and bagged the doctorate degree from the same University in 1994.
He began his teaching and research career at the University of Agriculture, Abeokuta as Assistant lecturer in 1994, and Rose through the ranks to become a Professor of Plant Breeding and Genetics on October 01, 2007. He was a recipient of the Graduate Fellowship Programme of the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, IITA, Ibadan for his doctorate degree as well as the Fellowship Award of the Chinese Government in 2008 for a short course at the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences. He was a Visiting Lecturer at the Mendel University in Brno, Czech Republic in 2010.
He has served the University in many capacities including: Chairman TEFAMAC/Coordinator, Farm Practical Year programme (2001-2004); Ag. HOD, Department of Plant Breeding and Seed Technology (2004-2008); Director, Graduate Records and Career Centre (2008-2009); Dean, College of Plant Science and Crop Production (2009- 2011); Director, Institute for Human Resources Development (2011-2013); Member, FUNAAB Governing Council (2009-2013); President, ASUU-UNAAB Multipurpose Cooperative Society (2010-2013). He was also at different times Chairman/Member of many University standing and ad-hoc committees.
At the National level, in 2009 he was a member of the National Technical Group on VISION 20:2020 as well as the Study Group on the Reorganisation of National Agricultural Cooperative and Rural Development Bank into BANK OF AGRICULTURE.
Prof. Kehinde had 3-year stint (2016-2019) at the Lagos State University where he assisted the University to establish its School of Agriculture and became the Pioneer Dean.
He has published many articles in both local and International journals and attended conferences, workshops and training programmes in United Kingdom, United States of America, South Africa, France, China, Israel, among others. He is a member of several professional bodies.
Prof. O. B. Kehinde is married to Prof. (Mrs.) Iyabode Kehinde, the University's Director of Academic Planning and they are blessed with children.
