Principal Scientist – Groundnut Pathology
Hari Kishan Sudini is Principal Scientist (Groundnut Pathology), Research Program-Asia, at ICRISAT, based in Hyderabad, India.
Hari obtained his PhD in 2009 from Auburn University, USA, majoring in plant pathology. During his doctoral studies, Hari worked on soil microbial community structure and aflatoxin contamination in different peanut-based crop rotations.
After joining ICRISAT, Sudini continued to do research on peanut aflatoxins and gained rich knowledge on aflatoxin management. His major areas of research are: devising integrated aflatoxin management strategies, better understanding of resistant mechanisms involved in peanut-aflatoxin resistance, and developing cost-effective aflatoxin diagnostics. His other accomplishments include identifying stable and high level of resistant sources in peanut to foliar fungal diseases, such as rust, late leaf spot; and to soil-borne diseases such as stem rot (caused by Sclerotium rolfsii) and collar rot (caused by Aspergillus niger).
To date, he has published more than 30 journal articles, and participated in many national and international conferences.
Expertise in: Pre- and post-harvest aflatoxin management, groundnut pathology, integrated disease management
