Introduction
I have joined Spices Board, Govt. of India in Feb, 2015 in the capacity of Scientist (Crop Improvement). I am primarily working on cardamom (small and large) and black pepper. My research interest lies in the sphere of exploration, collection and maintenance of germplasm, screening of elite accession, hybridisation, genetic structure of cardamom, pollen and pollination biology, breeding behaviour and organic farming. I have also been part of AICRP on Spices during 02/2017-12/2020.
