I have been working at IIHR, since, September 1992 onwards my contribution in the field of Vegetable Breeding are as follows  I have collected , evaluated, characterized, utilized and maintained  of watermelon (120) muskmelon  (125 ), cucumber  (150), ash gourd ( 40) and Okra (175 ) germplasm accessions  for breeding programme in the Vegetable Breeding Lab.II.. I have identified as a sources of resistance to major diseases namely Watermelon Bud Necrosis Virus ( Citullus colocynthis , C. lanatus var. citroids)  fusarium wilt and gummy stem blight in watermelon.
