Balwinder Singh

Cropping Systems Simulation Modeler

Balwinder Singh leads CIMMYT’s environmental analytics work in South Asia, combining field experimentation, participatory engagement and cropping systems modelling to address the region’s productivity and sustainability challenges in cereal systems.

Singh’s research focuses on developing technologies and strategies for natural resource conservation while addressing different agriculture issues like labor shortages, water scarcity, soil fertility loss, land degradation, rising temperatures and the other impacts from climate change in South Asian cropping systems. He also works on scenario analysis to explore the profitability, sustainability and the risk reduction potential of technological options under different contemporary and future climate scenarios.
