Dr. Reza Mohammadi is a plant breeder. He is graduated from the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) in 2012 and he did his PhD. thesis at International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) entitled Genetic components and QTL analysis of salinity tolerance at reproductive stage in rice (Oryza sativa L.). Now he is working on cool-season grasses breeding and grass-endophyte interaction.

Cool-season grasses have important role in agriculture. The forage grasses provide pasture and hay for the livestock industry, help prevent soil erosion on land which is unsuited for row crops, provide wildlife habitat and contribute to land reclamation. Turf grasses have long been a major landscape surface in the urban environment such as lawns, athletic fields and parks. Cool-season grasses could tolerate, more or less, environmental stresses such as drought, salinity and cold. Objectives of our research includes: to Collect and evaluate potentially useful grass germplasm, to Isolate and evaluate endophytes associated with cool-season grasses; selection, breeding and development of turf and forage cultivars for variable environmental conditions.

  • Study of genetic diversity of Festuca genus in Iran using morphological and molecular markers for forage and turf cultivars improvement,
  • Study of alkaloids produced in symbiotic relationship of endophytic fungi with Iranian grasses,
  • Evaluation of endophytic fungi for increasing drought and salt tolerance and stability of turfgrasses and study of endophytic fungi presence in Ulmus glabra and Platanus orientalis
  • Biotechnology of Endophytic Fungi
  • Evaluation of genetic variation of endophytic fungi isolated from Iranian grasses and grouping them based on SSR marker
