Years of experience
 26 years

He has published forty eight research articles in National journals. He also wrote around sixteen books and published thirteen popular articles.

Technology Generated:

a. Desi Cotton (Gossypium arboreum L.)

  In G. arboreum, developed 5 promising cultures namely CINA 305, CINA 306, CINA 310 A, CINA 310 B, CINA 323 B and CINA 329. These cultures are superior for earliness, fibre strength, fibre length, boll weight and locule holding capacity.

 

 

b. Desi cotton Gossypium arboreum genotypes immune to Grey mildew Ramularia areola disease of cotton

  Identified three Grey mildew immune genotypes of Gossypium arboreum and registered the same with National Bureau of Plant Genetic Resources, New Delhi as Indian National Genetic Resources, INGR No. 00017, 00018 and 02020, respectively. These are available with germplasm bank of the Central Institute for Cotton Research, Nagpur. .
