Agro-ecological research is leading to new understanding of agro-ecosystem function that is enabling yield growth through improved nutrient cycling, water utilization, improved pest and disease management, nitrogenfixation, and synergistic plant-water-atmospheric interactions. Researchers around the globe are discovering a host of possibilities in integrated food and nature systems that can offer both reasonably high yields and a sensible balance with nature. These systems will likely reduce their dependence on non-renewable inputs and integrate more advanced biological processes for sustainable intensification that conserve natural resources including soil and water. My research in this regard mainly focuses on water and plant nutrient management by integrating crop, soil and atmosphere using mathematical models, laboratory and field investigations.
