Biography

Esmat Farouk Ali is a professor at Fac. of Agriculture, Assiut Univ., Egypt. He teaches medicinal and aromatic plants, ornamental plants physiology, plant tissue culture as well as ornamental plants and landscape courses for undergraduates and graduates, and supervises M.S. theses. He received B.S (Agriculture), M.S. (Horticulture) from Assiut Univ., and Ph.D. (Medicinal and aromatic plants) from Assiut Univ. His research area of interest is medicinal and aromatic plants production, postharvest of Horticultural crops as well as environmental stresses. His research focuses on bio-fertilizers, volatile and fixed oils, plant production under saline and no saline conditions, Good Agriculture practices, postharvest treatments especially by 1-MCP and silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) as well as plant nutrition. He attended some of training courses in USA, China, Germany, Italy and Belgium in the fields of flower technology, medicinal and aromatic plants drying, education improvement and plant tissue culture. He is the author of Fifty-two scientific publications in territorial and international journals. He is an editorial board member of Journal of Agriculture and Bio-sciences, International Journal of Research Studies in Biosciences, World Journal of Biotechnology, and Excellent Word Journal of Agricultural Science and etc. as found in my CV.
