Biography

O P Meena obtained his Ph.D. degree in 2017 at Punjab Agricultural University (PAU), Ludhiana, India. Since December, 2017, he is working as Research Fellow in the Department of Vegetable Science, PAU, Ludhiana and undertook research projects focused on breeding tomato and chilli pepper for resistance to abiotic and biotic stresses. He is also associated with the development of genetic stocks incorporating cytoplasmic male sterility gene in chilli pepper.
