Work experience
I have 30 years of experience in the field of agricultural research. For the last 20 years I have been actively associated in the field of agroforestry research including two years as an expert to the Govt. of Vitetnam in establishment of various agroforestry systems and pastures. I have carried out detailed field studies on various agroforestry where tree is the dominant component. For sustainable agriculture, protection of environment and rural development these were my areas of interest. Farm forestry training at Chinese Academy of Forest, Beijing also helped my research programme. I was P.I. of IDRC aided agroforestry project (1990-1994) and Project Director (April-Oct. 1995) and also Director (Act.) April - Dec. 1995 at the National Res. Centre of Agroforestry, Jhansi, UP, India. Besides agroforestry research experrience, I also possess rich experience in the field of pasture and forage agronomy.
