Product Delivery:

RU Programme (MMAI) Paddy breeding Team: Planning, management and implements nursery and yield trial, sterilization of G-line, breeding crossing, genetic studies (bloom study and germplasm), maintainer line development, restorer line development and assist other Paddy breeding programme team (TGMS, LM, JV, MS) and coordinate Product Development trial program for the hybrid rice program for market segment in India.

Evaluate TC1 to R3 yield trials at research station: Discuss and prepare detailed sowing and planting plan of various Yield trial (R2, R3) and Nursery (TC1, R0, R1) of RU_APNI breeding program at Raipur station. Organize systematic data gathering and timely harvesting for various trial.

Extensively evaluate 20 MMAI R3 hybrids in East (Raipur station) and identify 3-4 hybrid for promoting to R4 and evaluate combine MMAI R2 hybrids and selected best picks to promote to R3. Evaluate breeding yield trials
