Personal InformationDr. Singh received his bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in agronomy from Punjab Agricultural University (Ludhiana, India). He also received a master’s degree in plant and environmental sciences from New Mexico State University. His doctorate in plant and environmental sciences is from New Mexico State University. He is a member of the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, Soil Science Society of America, and Gama Sigma Delta.
Prior to joining the Tech faculty, Singh worked as a graduate research assistant at New Mexico State University’s Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, and a research associate in the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (New Delhi) National Professor Project at Punjab Agricultural University.
Dr. Singh will continue his research efforts in plant water relations, stress physiology,
irrigation management, crop modeling, crop production and soil health. His research
interests mainly focus on soil-plant-environment interactions to develop a cropping
system that is efficient in using the limited irrigation water resources and rainfall.
One of his primary goals here at Tech is to develop a multi-disciplinary research to investigate the effect of climate change on crop physiology and production for efficient use of resources in irrigated as well as dryland cropping systems, and to simulate future threats on crop productivity for sustainable agriculture.
