I am working as a plant breeder at BRAC Agriculture Research & Development Centre. So far I have developed a good no. of varieties of different crops including vegetables and pulses as well as oil crops. And a good no. of advance lines are waiting in the pipe line for their release as commercial varieties. I have also developed some uncommon varieties like red okra, red spinach, yellow seeded mung bean, summer country bean, summer radish etc. which have enough health benefits as well.
