Research Areas/ Areas of Interest

  • My research pertains to increasing efficiency of biofertilizers of various useful soil microorganisms, namely, rhizobia and plant growth promoting rhizospheric microorganisms (PGPRM). I am also involved to seek the role of PGPRs particularly in diseases suppression. I am also associated with many projects related to the nutrient management for hill and plains. Apart from teaching, right now his whole time associated with All India Coordinated Research Project (AICRP) on Pulses Improvement (like Greengram, Blackgram, Lentil, Chickpea and Soybean) a national research projecting having centers at different Agricultural Universities, and working on harnessing the potential of rhizospheric microorganisms including rhizobia of grain legumes. I am also associated in the projects finding out the impact of agrochemical on soil microflora in the university.
