Being Plant breeder my prioritize job is to change the genetics of plants through a variety of molecular & conventional schemes of modifications to feed the human & livestock. Not only this in a teamwork my focus will be on the applications of biotechnology and molecular breeding for improving the overall function of various plants and crop systems especially Cereals & Legumes. Besides the applied research I would like to add my inputs in basic sciences. By the changing nature of crops I would like to emphasize on the Genotype by Environment interaction in crops for screening out the stable lines.

I would like to serve as reviewer of quality manuscripts in different national & International journals & use the techniques already applied by different researcher for the improvement of wheat, maize & other crop
