Main profile profile for BK Singh
My primary research interests are (I) Development of high yielding varieties, promising/robust parental/CMS lines having better combining ability and heterotic hybrids; (II) Identification of stress tolerance genotypes (heat, humid, black rot, etc); (III) Tropicalization of temperate vegetables; and (IV) Development of nutrient/vitamins/colour/antioxidants/anthocyanins/bioactive rich genotypes/varieties/hybrids of cole crops (Cauliflower, Cabbage, Kale), root vegetables (Radish, Carrot) and leafy greens.
(A) Developed varieties/CMS lines/Hybrids of tropical cauliflower forming curds at 20-30 °C temp [Kashi Gobhi-25; CMS lines/Hybrids (Curding at 22-30 °C temp; creamish-white to white compact curds)].
(B) Developed varieties/CMS lines/Hybrids of radish (White and Red root) suitable for cultivation during spring/summer/autumn/winter seasons [Kashi Lohit (Red root); Kashi Mooli-40; Kashi Aardra (Humid regions); CMS lines/Hybrids (spring/summer/autumn/winter seasons; entire/sinuate/lyrate leaf; tapered/cylindrical root shape)].
(C) Developed varieties/promising lines of red/orange/black/yellow carrots [Kashi Arun (Red root); Kashi Krishna (Black root)].
(D) Developed varieties/promising lines of bathua (leafy chenopod) [Kashi Bathua-2 (Green leaf); Kashi Bathua-4 (Purplish-green leaf)].
(E) Developed varieties/promising lines of purple/green-podded vegetable French bean (Snap bean) [Kashi Rajhans; Kashi Baingani (Purple pod, pole type); IC 0611107 (Mizoram state)].
(F) Tropicalization of temperate vegetables: Tropical kale (VRKALE-1), Tropical cabbage; Tropical orange carrot.
