Bonface Manono

Small Acreage Management Specialist- Mountain Region, CSU Extension

Canon City, CO

Bonface was raised in a small-scale farming family in Kenya that depended on agriculture for its food. This gave him an opportunity to taste home grown food at an early age and an interest in agricultural production. His PhD project focused on pasture irrigation and effluent (cow dung mixed with water) spreading in the Canterbury region and organic farming in New Zealand’s North Island dairy farms from the University of Otago, New Zealand. He also has a master’s degree in Waste Management with Environmental Management from the University of the West of Scotland, United Kingdom. As a regional specialist, Bonface’s role is to share research-based knowledge with landowners and land managers to enable them to solve immediate natural resource issues while increasing their land’s viability, sustainability, and resilience. His interest is in soil-plant-water-environment interactions, and he is collaborating with Drought Advisors to help develop effective drought management options for landowners.
