This paper investigates integrating cloud computing into knowledge sharing practices at the Nigerian Stored Products Research Institute. It emphasizes the significance of cloud computing in improving research outcomes and knowledge sharing practices. The objectives of the study are outlined, including investigating current knowledge sharing practices, attitudes toward cloud computing, and potential benefits and challenges associated with integration. The significance of the study is discussed in terms of its impact on NSPRI, the Nigerian agricultural sector, and the broader adoption of cloud computing technologies in research organizations. The study used a qualitative approach, including in-depth interviews with NSPRI researchers, both face-to-face and online, and collected data through audio recordings and verbatim transcriptions, and the data collected from the interviews were analysed using qualitative content analysis. Qualitative content analysis was applied to the collected data. The analysis presents insights into current knowledge-sharing practices, attitudes toward cloud computing, and recommendations for integration improvement.
