Areas of Expertise:

  • Wheat
  • Cultivar development
  • Marker assisted breeding
  • Plant pathology
  • Cultivar testing

Current Projects:

  • Develop high yield hexaploid wheat cultivars with resistance to abiotic/biotic stresses to enhance profitability of wheat production in the drought-prone brown and dark brown soil zones
  • Enhance resistance to Fusarium head blight in major wheat quality classes to improve food safety through reduced mycotoxin content
  • Improve resistance to leaf, stem and stripe rust, leaf spot diseases, common bunt, loose smut, and powdery mildew in hexaploid wheat cultivars.
