He graduated as an irrigation and melioration engineer, than a biology teacher and later as an agronomist. He served the Hungarian Plant Gene Bank Institution at Tapioszele for a decade whichh formed the basis for his plant breeding interest. He integrated biotechnology methods into plant science. His staff in Szeged released the first doubled haploid wheat variety GK D lib b in 1992, in Hungary, which was followed by other released and patented winter wheat genotypes. In cooperation with rice breeders, they also released three varieties Risabell, Janka, Abel using different tissue culture techniques like haploid method, selection of somatic tissues, embryo culture. Also, their androgenesis method is successfully used to produce DH parental lines for creation of hybrids in papper. The genetic transformation as a research method is frequently used in their different research projects.His main research interests are the abiotic stress tolerance in cereals and its genetic background. Candidate genes in abiotic stress tolerance were transferred in cereals to study the effect phenotype of the genes. He is the chief editor of Cereal Research Communications, a well-known 40 years old international quarterly journal in cereal science. He organized the 1st International Congress of Cereal Biotechnology and Breeding in Szeged.
