Salient Achievements:

In my capacity as Scientist (Plant Pathology) at the NBPGR Regional Station Jodhpur, I am undertaking various activities pertaining to plant genetic resources management, which includes germplasm collection, characterization, evaluation, conservation and documentation of plant genetic resources in the arid region of western India. In particular, I am actively involved in evaluation of germplasm against biotic stress under field condition of arid climates. In addition to that I am involved in utilization of genetic resources in crop improvement. Besides this, I have been actively involved in documentation and presentation in training programmes on different aspects such as management of plant genetic resources.
