R. K. Mishra
Dr. R.K. Mishra is presently working as Principal Scientist (Plant Pathology) is associated with Research and development activity on pulses. He involves in Host Pant Resistance (HPR), characterization and management of major biotic stresses of pigeonpea and implementation of bio-control agents based bio-intensive modules for management of biotic stresses of pulses and AICRP on pigeonpea. He identified several donors for wilt (Fusarium udum, race-2) resistance and Phytophthora blight in pigeonpea. He characterized potential isolates of Trichoderma harzianum, T. asperellum, T. longibrachiatum and developed a talc based formulations i.e. Dalhanderma (IIPRTh-31) and Dalhanderma- 1 (IIPRTh-1). He handled independently project on plant pathological aspect, also conducted various training programme and organized seminars/symposia. He has more than 13 year experiences in the area of plant pathology, bio-control of plant disease management, IPM and published more than 100 research papers/reviews/ conference papers/abstracts and popular articles of international/ national repute are credited to him. Dr. Mishra has written four books, five technical bulletin, manuals and extension folders on biotic stresses management in crop plants.
Agricultural Microbiology is a book designed with adequate number multiple choice question book specially designed to improve the knowledge of students and to provide them a powerful knowledge and feedback in their progress and future opportunities. thus, primarily this book can serve as a self-assessment guide for the students who are preparing for competitive examinations specially ASRB,ARS, PRE, ICAR-NET, ICAR-SRF, ICAR-JRF etc. and secondly, meant for those who appearing for UG, PG study in agriculture colleges/ agriculture institutes/ agriculture universities etc. the main objective of this book is to help students to enrich their powerful knowledge of microbiology because it is essential for the development of students in the area of agriculture science
