Areas of Interest: 

My name is Bharat Raj Meena. I borne on 10th July 1988 at village Pithpur, district-Baran, Rajasthan. I have done my matriculation from Adarsh Vidhya Mandir Chhabra, Baran, Rajasthan in 2003. I passed higher secondary in 2005 have physics, chemistry and biology as core subjects. I have done my graduation from the Agricultural college Bapatla, ANGRAU, Hyderabad in 2011. I did my post-graduation from Indian Institute of Agricultural Research, Pusa Campus New Delhi in 2013

Currently we are working on Bio-prospecting of microorganisms associated with vegetables against plant pathogens. In this area we are mainly focusing on development of microbial bio-formulation and modules against the major vegetable pest.

We are also working on different inoculation and screening techniques for the evaluation of vegetable germplasms against plant pathogens. Currently our main focus is on early and late blight of tomato, collar rot of Basella and banded leaf and sheath blight of sweat corn and baby corn sweet corn.
