About Jiban Shrestha

Jiban Shrestha earned Master Degree in Agriculture (M.Sc. Ag) from Institute of Agriculture and Animal Sciences, Rampur, Chitwan under Tribhuvan University, Nepal in 2007. He is working in the capacity of Scientist (Plant Breeding and Genetics) at National Maize Research Programme, Rampur, Chitwan under Nepal Agricultural Research Council, Nepal since 2010 to till date. Mr. Shrestha has been involved in basic and applied research on maize mainly related to development, maintenance and improvement of hybrid and open pollinated maize varieties as well as soil nutrient management for maize grown in various production systems. He has played vital role for development and release of Rampur Hybrid-2 and two other pipe line hybrids, three pipeline early varieties and one yellow quality protein maize (QPM) variety. He has published more than 40 peer reviewed articles in both national and international journals, more than five proceeding papers, 10 scientific abstracts, 18 scientific reports, 10 magazine articles, one leaflet, one newsletter article and one book. He has been affiliated to more than 100 international journals [including " European Journal of Agronomy" (Elsevier)] and seven national publications as editor or reviewer. Before embarking on his career as Scientist, he had worked as Project Officer at Support Activities for Poor Producers of Nepal (SAPPROS) under Education for Income Generation (EIG) in Nepal Program funded by USAID/Winrock Int’l Institute for Agriculture Development, Nepal.
