BBSRC-Bioscience for future & TIGR2ESS: Transforming India’s Green Revolution by Research and Empowerment for Sustainable food Supplies

BBSRC-Bioscience for future – TIGR2ESS (2017………..) TIGR2ESS: Transforming India's Green Revolution by Research and Empowerment for Sustainable food Supplies The record grain outputs of India's Green Revolution in the 1970s established India as one of the world's largest agricultural producers, transforming the country from a starving nation to a food exporter, creating jobs and boosting … Continue reading BBSRC-Bioscience for future & TIGR2ESS: Transforming India’s Green Revolution by Research and Empowerment for Sustainable food Supplies

DST-Early Career Research Award- Derivation of algorithms for automated and accelerated phenotyping using high throughput phenotyping platform-Leasy scan, to understand and enhance environmental adaptations in sorghum

Leasy scan-high throughput phenotyping for canopy size and structure components: derivation of algorithms for Sorghum plays an important role in ensuring food and fodder security for millions of rural families in the semi-arid tropics. Breeding for improved varieties for water-limited environments has been slow, especially in developing countries, mostly because of the highly unpredictable environments … Continue reading DST-Early Career Research Award- Derivation of algorithms for automated and accelerated phenotyping using high throughput phenotyping platform-Leasy scan, to understand and enhance environmental adaptations in sorghum

European Research Council Grant- Contribute to a long-term perspective on human adaptation and establishment of resilient cultivation systems in dry lands

Today, drylands cover over 40% of the Earth’s surface and are home to approximately 2.3 billion people (International Institute for Environment and Development- iied.org). At the beginning of the 1990s, desertification was recognized as one of the main challenges of sustainable development by the United Nations, and in 1994, the United Nation Convention to Combat … Continue reading European Research Council Grant- Contribute to a long-term perspective on human adaptation and establishment of resilient cultivation systems in dry lands

CGIAR Research Program on Grain Legumes and Dryland Cereals

The contribution of the group to the scope of these two large CG-wide initiative follows the main research streams , therefore essentially around:

  • Trait dissection of plant adaptation to water limitation and high evaporative demand conditions
  • Modelling activities for priority setting of critical breeding and agronomic management targets

DST-SERB (N-PDF): Adaptability of mungbean [Vigna radiata (L.) R. Wilczek] varieties for drought environments (2018-20)

Mungbean [green gram; Vigna radiata (L.) R. Wilczek] is a nutritive legume crop that fixes 58–109 kg/ha atmospheric nitrogen symbiotically. India is the largest producer (65% of world acreage) and consumer (54% of world production) of mungbean. The crop is cultivated over a wide range of environmental conditions such as on marginal soils with low … Continue reading DST-SERB (N-PDF): Adaptability of mungbean [Vigna radiata (L.) R.
