University of Agriculture, Pakistan
Dr. Saddam Hussain is working under Department of Agronomy, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad. He completed his Ph.D degree from Huazhong Agricultural University, China, and was declared as “Distinguished International Young Scholar”. He published over 100 refereed journal papers (IF:>350, h-index: 34, citations:>4000), many of which have sought to understand the morphological, physiological, biochemical and molecular basis of crop responses (rice in particular) to individual and concurrent abiotic stresses and mechanisms imparting tolerance for such stresses. He devised promising strategies for improving the crop performance under sub-optimum conditions (salinity, drought, submergence, temperature extremes, metal toxicity) and suggested various novel indicators for augmenting stress tolerance in plants.
