Familiar Faces in New Places: Amjad Ahmad

Welcome to a new role to Amjad Ahmad, who joins O‘ahu Cooperative Extension as an assistant Extension agent in Sustainable and Organic Agriculture. Amjad, a CTAHR PhD alumnus, previously worked for the college as a junior researcher in TPSS.

Amjad’s educational background is the area of agronomy, field crops, legume crops production, organic amendments, and nitrogen applications. His areas of focus are sustainable and organic agriculture, specialty crops, crop diversity, variety selection, and plant nutrition and soil fertility. He has been trialing chickpea varieties to find the cultivars that thrive best on different islands in support of farmers who hope to start growing this sustainable new crop.

Amjad brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from his work with the Sustainable and Organic Agriculture Program (SOAP) at CTAHR. His Extension experience working with the public- and private-sector clients—including researchers, specialists, Extension agents, farmer training programs, and local growers throughout Hawai‘i—makes him a great addition to O‘ahu Cooperative Extension!
