Scenery stands out in my mind when I visited Krishna and Guntur Districts in Andhra Pradesh State which is very close to my previous project workstation in 2017. severe infestation of the blast in wheat fully burned the wheat field and potentiality of 100% yield loss. This threatened consequence against food security that I witnessed in Krishna and Guntur Districts inspired me to uncover how epigenetic gene expression can overcome the epidemic diseases of wheat and ensure maximum yield, which motivated me to apply for master’s Program in ?’Plant Breeding??. World population is increasing day by day and we are still not able to feed the entire population, plant breeding is the only way to increase the yield. Breeding new crops is important for ensuring food security by developing new varieties that are higher-yielding, resistant to pests and diseases, drought-resistant or regionally adapted to different environments and growing conditions This unique master’s program not only develops my understanding of genetics and plant breeding methods but also teaches me how to apply new techniques such as molecular marker technologies and also interact with other significant disciplines such as agronomy, plant protection, plant physiology. I want to gain knowledge about plant-microbe interaction which is required in the breeding of pathogen resistance plant varieties which is the main reason to choose this mobility track. Moreover, this mobility track helps me to gain knowledge not only about different breeding schemes that are used for Vegetable and Fruits, but also about different disciplines like Pathology, Gene Technologies and Biosafety, and Biochemical Changes during Fruit Maturation which are very important for my future career as a scientist.
I believe that it is beneficial for me to gather vast knowledge on scientific and technological aspects about different crops and management practices which I never encountered earlier, which are relevant to plant breeding. Optimistically, I will get the scope to work in a well-equipped laboratory and imply recent research methods to formulate agricultural problems. Therefore, this program is the ground for the advancement to my bachelors and it also fits perfectly with my career aims.
