Research Interest

Environmental stresses are major constraints to the productivity of crops throughout the world. It is therefore imperative that mechanisms and causes of the stress effects on plant growth and development may be determined systematically, and strategies may be adopted to overcome adverse effects of stresses in order to achieve maximum productivity from the salinity, high temperature and drought-hit areas. My current interests are focused on the expression of stress proteins and other stress related primary and secondary metabolites under water, salinity, heat and cadmium stresses, and finding strategies to fetch greater yields under such conditions. Among various crops, major emphasis is on wheat, barley, rice, sugarcane and maize.
