Prior to joining IRRI in Oct 2006 my major interest was on soil, water, nutrient and residue management of rice-wheat systems in North West India and Pakistan, and of rice-based sysems in Southern NSW, Australia. Other recent research areas included evaluation of sprinkler and sub-surface drip irrigation for maize, and development of a decision support system for sowing, water and nitrogen management for irrigated maize.
