Research Projects:
Completed:

 Substitution of Potassium by sodium in sugar beet nutrition with special reference


to K+-fixing soil.
This project was conducted for my PhD work at Institute of Plant Nutrition university of
Giessen, Germany.
A book is published for doctoral requirements.
One article in a peer review journal is published and second is in pipe line.

• Role of plasmalemma H+-ATPase in adaptation of sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.)


under salt stress
Project is completed and the data is submitted for publication in a peer review journal.

On-going:

• Adaptations of sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.) at protein level under different levels
of salt stress.
(With Professor Sven Schubert, Institute of Plant Nutrition Giessen)
• Effect of different K+-applications on wheat growth under sodium salinity
(With Professor Konrad Mengel, Institute of Plant Nutrition Giessen)
