Biography

I am honest, laborious, down to earth and goal oriented mind set towards my organization and better social service to the farmer, and significant contribution to the Indian economy. I look forward to a challenging Job which helps me to serve the society as well as nation. In the present context, conservation agriculture is a big platform to reduce the soil health deterioration. I have worked on use of crop residue for minimizing nitrogen, phosphors and potassium nutrient in Indo-Gangatic belt of Mollisol. Application of crop residue reduces the potassium negative balance and crop yield in this region. Later on, I worked on Phosphorus dynamics in relation to organic acids, Hence use of sugarcane industrial byproduct i.e. bagasse & press mud for insitu phosphorus mobilization, and enhanced the soil available phosphorus to agricultural crop production. The byproduct of sugarcane industries are facing a big problem of storage, if we can use this waste material for nutrient mobilization, than it can be a alternative option for reducing phosphorus fertilizers import. Apart from this, I am working on tannery effluent irrigation effect on soil chemical, physical and biological properties. I have assessed the effect of chromium heavy metal on wheat and pigeon pea germination, & root and shoot growth. The chromium metal causing many malfunctions in plant and human system it is one of the main causes of cancer in chromium polluted areas. I am actively engaged to check/ reduce the chromium contamination in food chain. I am also working on use of sewage irrigation in peri urban areas and its impact on crop quality & soil properties.
