Biographic Sketch:
Dr. K. Rama Krishna is working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Horticulture at School of Life Sciences, Central University of Tamil Nadu, Thiruvarur, Tamil Nadu. He perceived his Ph.D. (Postharvest Technology) from ICAR- Indian Agriculture Research Institute (IARI), New Delhi, India’s prestigious agriculture Institute. He did his M.Sc Horticulture (Postharvest Technology) from the University of Horticulture Sciences, Bagalkot, Bengaluru campus. His Ph.D work was no Mango, Thesis title: Studies on Jelly Seed Disorder in Mango and its Detection with X-Ray Imaging. He is a life member of many reputed research societies/Institutes/organizations such as Indian Science Congress Association: Kolkata, West Bengal; Indian Academy of Horticultural Science: New Delhi, Delhi etc. His area of specialization is storage/shelf life studies, processing and value-addition of horticultural crops, packaging of horticultural crops and non-destructive technologies. He has published 15 research articles, 9 book chapters, and 9 magazine articles in the field of horticultural sciences exclusively in specialised work on postharvest management of horticultural crops. He guided 6 M.Sc student's dissertations. Presently he is guiding two Ph.D research scholars and 3 M.Sc. Students.

Research Highlights :

I has specialization on Postharvest Managment of Horticultural Crops, focusing on the theme areas such as storage, packaging, value addition, non destructive techniques, etc., His work will be helping to reduce the post-harvest losses which are occurring in the horticultural perishables at a tune of 25-30 per cent. His works on edible coatings on fruits, vegetables and flowers have significantly helped in extending the shelf-life.
