His research work is aim to understand wild rice genotype root architectural responses to organic nitrogen nutrition.

She is working to elucidate the response of K on rice root architecture as there are several reports which suggest the role of K in drought tolerance but most of them are concentrated on leaves photosynthesis and other plant growth and cellular physiological effects. There were very few studies also indicate the role of K in root hydraulic features but no information is available on the effect of K under moisture stress condition on root architecture of rice.

He had done his research on influenced of nitrogen nutrition on rice root architecture. The aim of his study was to evaluate the suitability of IR-28, which is breed and selected for high input system, to organic agriculture. As such investigation is difficult in field condition, due to temporal and spatial variability of organic nitrogen in the soil, a petri dish experiment was conducted under controlled laboratory condition, having twelve treatment combinations comprising of three forms of nitrogen: NO3-, NH4 + and organic nitrogen (amino acid mixture); with four levels of nitrogen: 50%, 75%, 100% and 125 %. Nitrogen treatment responses were compared with two control treatment: control - I 100% N, Yoshida solution and control - II 0% N Yoshida. Various root architecture features were observed with EZ-Rhizo and results suggesting that our current varieties may not suitable for organic agriculture as in the study IR-8 roots showed nitrogen starvation phenotype in higher organic nitrogen treatments.

M.Sc. (Agriculture) Crop Physiology           

Graduating Year 2014-2016

His research was focused on salinity responses of tomato seedling. As salinity is a combination of water and ionic stress, thus for identification of suitable target trait, it is essential to distinguish responses individually for ionic and water stress. He subjected tomato seedling to iso-osmotic stress as maintained by PEG-8000 and NaCl and then various physiological parameters were observed.
