About the Author
Dr. Anil K. Sharma is a Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences, CBSH G.B. Pant University of Agriculture & Technology, Pantnagar. After completing his post-doctoral studies at GSU, Louisiana, USA, he served as a Visiting Scientist at the University of Basel, Switzerland; and at the University of Helsinki, Lathi, Finland. Prof. Sharma has extensive research and teaching experience, holds two patents (in plant biology and microbiology, respectively), and has received a number of prestigious grants. He has published more than 60 research articles and 30 review articles. Prof. Pratibha Sharma is an ICAR Emeritus Scientist and former Principal Scientist and Professor at the Division of Plant Pathology, ICAR Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi. Her major area of research concerns biological control agents, especially Trichoderma, Metarhizium, Beauveria and Pseudomonas and their use in IPM and IDM for various crop systems. Prof. Sharma has more than 100 peer-reviewed research papers in national and international journals, as well as a patent on Trichoderma, to her credit. Having received several awards from professional societies, Prof. Sharma is currently working on the application of Trichoderma harzianum and Metarhizium anisopilae to combat major pests impacting groundnut and cumin.
