Summary

My research work focusses on understanding and unraveling the intricacies associated with grassland ecology, management, and utilization.

  • Developing and promoting sustainable pastoral-based feeding systems for ruminant livestock production with emphasis on grazing management, systems, and forage quality evaluations.
  • Screening forage crops for key adaptive traits, namely drought  tolerance and water use efficiency for both improved and native forages in semiarid conditions.
  • Evaluation of alternative forage crops for semiarid conditions.
  • Studying grassland's role in the provision of ecosystems services and nutrient cycling in pasture systems.
  • Cutting edge biological research on climate resilient forage crops.
