If you've had some sort of formal education at least to the secondary level, you as well know very well what I'm about to talk about.

Somewhere along the line especially in science, botanical names of plants and crops were our daily recitation. Just as "s o" "so" and "g o" "go".

For the sake of our exams and fear of being canned by our science teachers, these botanical names was something some students never joked with.


After years of completing school and now fully emersed in work life, do you still remember the botanical names of these plants / crops wey back in school.?
