Systems Analysis for Climate Smart Agriculture (SACSA) at ICRISAT:

The Crop Physiology Laboratory is part of the SACSA team and undertakes research on abiotic stresses, and in particular drought and climate change adaptation in ICRISAT’s mandated crops (sorghum, pearl millet, groundnut, chickpea and pigeonpea), and cross-species initiatives to better understand drought adaptation across cereals and legumes. The activity of the lab involves undertaking research to better understand the physiological mechanisms of tolerance to abiotic stresses and improve screening methods towards the phenotyping of large number of entries for mapping/breeding purposes. This includes crop modeling to better frame genetic and agronomic management targets and for understanding the plant traits which are important for tolerance to abiotic stresses and maximizing productivity under the range of environment x management interactions. This Lab is also expanding its work in the area of grain and stover quality recognizing that product quality in dual-purpose crops (e.g. fodder value of stover, grain quality) are increasingly important traits to consider in breeding targets for crop-livestock systems. 

Responsibilities:

  • Expertise in measuring the phenotypic expression of plant responsiveness to abiotic stress and agronomic management across crops species and utilizing this understanding in process based crop models
  • Conduct physiological studies on plant adaptive mechanisms to water stress and climate change related to plant water acquisition and usage in order to develop and improve screening assays for critical traits to enhance plant productivity and nutritional density in SAT agro-ecosystems
  • Generate phenotyping data from field-based and platform-based measurements enabling the genetic mapping of environmental adaptation traits in different crops species
  • Assemble databases of weather & soil information that enable the further simulation of cereal and pulse production across location and environments in India/sub-Saharan Africa
  • Work with multidisciplinary teams to connect the above work outputs to progress towards the CGIAR centers mission; i.e. enhanced livelihood, especially of smallholder farmers, to overcome poverty, hunger, malnutrition, and a degraded environment through more efficient and profitable agriculture
  • Ensure quality of measurement through effective training, communication and collaboration with the technical staff
  • Training of young scientists in modeling and physiology, including the guidance of MSc and Ph.D. students
