Working for Agricultural Research and Development
- Part time
I have been working at SAARC Agricultural Centre (SAC) since 1994 in different capacities with specialization in crops production, improvement and management with utmost satisfaction of my supervisors.
My routine responsibility is associated with identifying, planning, coordinating, developing, implementing and management of short and medium term programmes/projects in thrust areas of Research & Development of crop sciences.
In addition, I organize and coordinate workshops, seminars, consultation, trainings etc. independently related to the emerging areas in crop sciences and also maintaining linkages with national, regional and international institutions for effective planning and implementation of the Centre’s activities.
As Editor of the SAARC AgriNews (quarterly newsletter) and SAARC Journal of Agriculture (SJA) of the Centre for six years I have gained considerable experience in research trend and priority in crop sector in the region and presently working as an Editorial Board Member of SJA.
Also I was associated in editing and compiling sixty technical publications related to crop improvement, management and genetic resource conservation. My experience in publishing priority programmes into appropriate forms would help me to translate information to be disseminated among stakeholders.
