Work ExperienceHas been instrumental in developing pulpwood based agroforestry systems in collaboration with paper industry (ITC-PSPD, Sarapaka) which not only arrests land degradation but also contributes towards livelihood enhancement for drought prone areas in semi arid regions. Has about 15 years of experience in developing technologies which arrests soil erosion and land degradation particularly in semi arid regions of the country. Developed technologies involving vegetative measures and silvi pasture systems which not only arrests land degradation but also enhances biomass productivity from degraded lands. Actively involved in development of conservation agriculture technologies which enhances soil quality and enhances productivity. Has been involved in developing Integrated resource management (IRM) technologies for sustainable agricultural production under semi-arid ecosystems in watershed perspective and evaluated several watershed development programs for their effectiveness in arresting land degradation, drought and enhancing agricultural productivity
