While attending the ISPC meeting (see above), Dr Solh met with research leaders in India to formalize the 2012 workplan for India-ICARDA collaborative research. Dr S Ayyappan, Director General of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), said the collaborative program had achieved excellent results, and should be expanded further. Similar views were expressed by Dr JS Samra, CEO of the National Rainfed Area Authority; and two former ICAR Directors General, Dr Mangala Rai and Dr RS Paroda.

Dr Solh also visited the Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI), where a collaborative research program is developing new varieties of lentil and chickpea.
