Plant tissue culture represents the most promising areas of application at present time and giving an out look into the future. My focus areas ranges from micropropagation of rare, endangered and threatened plants of the Himalayan region as well as economically and nutritionally important plants of cold regions. In addition, I am developing in vitro systems for rapid mass propagation of high quality, disease free and uniform planting material with focus on cost effective practices.

Research Focus:

Phyllostachys pubescens, Nardostachys jatamansi, Ferula asafoetida, Crocus sativus, Amomum subulatum, Siraitia grosvenorii, Camellia sinensis, Chlorophytum comosum.

Training of graduate students, post-graduate students, farmers, agriculture officers and entrepeuners in plant tissue culture.
