Along with his fellow colleagues Dr. Amjad Masood Husaini at Mountain Research Centre for Field Crops (erstwhile Rice Research & Regional Station), SKUAST of Kashmir has been working industriously in research, development and popularization of high yielding rice varieties suitable for Kashmir zone. Though his field of specialization is Biotechnology, yet he has contributed significantly in research and development of two cold tolerant temperate cms (cytoplasmic male sterile) lines SKAU-7A & SKAU-11A, and two blast resistant high yielding cold tolerant rice varieties Shalimar Rice 2 (SKAU-341) & Shalimar Rice 3 (SKAU-382). He has characterized more than 500 rice germplasm accessions and maintained these in the germplasm bank at MRCFC, Khudwani. Besides he has significantly contributed in the initiation and conduct of programmes for quality rice development, purification of indigenous scented landraces like ‘Mushk budgi’ & ‘Kamad’, evaluation of local red rice types ‘Zag’, popularization of basmati introductions like Pusa Sugandh-3, and research and development of early maturing basmati type rice suitable for cultivation in Kashmir valley. He is involved in hybrid rice development (between indica and japonica types), and in generation, evaluation of elite breeding material with cold tolerance, blast resistance, early maturity and improved yield through extensive inter-varietal crossing. He is also involved in the field testing of rice trials constituted at National level by Directorate of Rice Research, Hyderabad under AICRIP (All India Coordinated Rice Improvement Project), and observational nurseries supplied by International Rice Research Institute, Phillipines (IRRI) under INGER (International Network for Genetic Evaluation of Rice) programme.
