All these varieties have found a significant place under cultivation at the farmers’ fields.


Nine production technologies have been developed as a group leader or member of the core team for the direct use/benefit of the farmers. All these technologies have been included in the Package of Practices for Kharif/Rabi crops of Punjab/Haryana state and have found a significant place at the farmers’ fields to improve their crops productivity and livelihood security.

 Significant contributions relating to the relevant field of specialization

  1. TEACHING: Teaching experience of 6 years: 2 years at PAU, Ludhiana, 3 years at CCSHAU, Hisar and 1 year at ICAR-CSSRI (for NDRI Students), Karnal covering 12 different UG/PG courses in areas of weed management, crop production and oilseeds agronomy. Guided two (one M.Sc. and one Ph.D.) students as co-advisor, acted as external examiner (paper setter/evaluator) and Thesis/Comprehensive Oral examination.
  2. RESEARCH: Developed doable agronomic practices which were subsequentlyincluded in the‘Package of Practices for the Kharif/Rabi crops of Haryana/Punjab’for widespread adoption by the farmers. Some of the notable technologies/practices are: Agronomic package for 7 varieties/hybrids (Mustard: RH 0749, RH 0406; Sunflower: PSH 569, PSH 996, DK 3849; Sesame: RT 346 and linseed: LC 2063) released at National/State level; 9 different production technologies including optimum sowing time in sunflower and sesame, bio-inoculation in mustard, weed management in sesame, transplanting techniques for canola gobhisarson under delayed planting conditions and farmer friendly herbicide based production technology for management of parasitic weed Orobanchein mustard. In addition, my research work has produced concepts, methodologies and other relevant outputs for sustaining crop production in north-western India. Some of the notable contributions are: modified reduced tillage with inorganic N fertilization in maize and integrated nitrogen management (50-50) in wheat for sustainable production under rainfed conditions; maize (50 cm) + blackram/greengram (1:1) for biologically and economically viable crop intensification in rainfed areas; survey of on-farm N-use pattern in rice-wheat cropping system revealed pressing need for revalidation of the existing recommendations; leaf colour chart based N scheduling for efficient N management in rice; utilization of municipal solid waste compost for improving crop yields and soil properties in amended saline soils. Digitally stratified thematic soil and water quality map delineating soil sodicity (soil pH) and residual alkalinity (RSC) in irrigation waters forKaithal and Panipat district facilitated the end users for sustainable utilization of ground water and appropriate ameliorative/ management practices to harness the potential of cultivated crops under sodic environments. Geo-referenced soil fertility maps and distribution of Soil Health Cards(150 No) will compliment in decision support system for balanced fertilization viewing available soil nutrient status.
  3. EXTENSION: To fast track dissemination of doable salinity management technologies among the farmers, we have developed a mobile app ‘Salinity Expertwhich is freely available. Twelve ‘Success Stories’ related to rainwater management, crops and cropping systems, improved varieties, farm mechanization and salinity management have been published. In addition, I have also published 23 Popular Articles, 4 Technical Bulletins, 4 Extension Folders/Leaflets and 6 Training Manuals for farmers and other stakeholders. I have organized/coordinated 13 trainings/seminars, 22 Field days/Interface Meetings/KisanGoshthies, 30 KisanMelas, 704 FLDs, 18 exhibitions and delivered 3 TV/ Radio Talks.
