He has also worked on Integrated Pest Management and Water management in rice cropping systems in one of the ICAR’s Institute in Hyderabad.

During this period he conducted laboratory bio-assays to study the susceptibility and resistance to various groups of insecticides of natural, synthetic and biological origin. He also conducted small and large scale field trials in controlling mosquito vectors of Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV) in rice fields. He developed a farmers’ and eco-friendly strategy for the control of Japanese encephalitis mosquito vectors using neem and intermittent irrigation (water management). He developed a cost effective strategy to control JEV vectors in JE endemic areas which was adopted by Tamilnadu Government between 1996 and 98 for the control of Japanese encephalitis disease in the villages.
