Dr. Mudalagiriyappa involved in multi-disciplinary research, mainly on natural resource management with emphasis on precision nutrient and water management both under rainfed and irrigated eco systems and weed dynamics. His research is focused on the rural-urban interface of Bangalore-A space of transitions in agriculture, economics and society for sustainable production on soil and water quality. One of the important areas of his current research is conservation agriculture with more emphasis on soil carbon enrichment under rainfed agriculture along with development of climate resilient agricultural practices for higher productivity of nutrient, water and use of crops sensors in agriculture.
