At PAU, he consistently worked in the maize improvement team and evolved maize varieties and hybrids including: Ageti-76, Partap, Sangam, Navjot, Sartaj, Parbhat, Kiran, J-1006, Megha, Kesri, Punjab Sathi-1, Paras, Pearl Popcorn, Parkash, and JH 3459. The team carried out pioneering work on breeding and production technology for maize cultivation in non traditional seasons which led to emergence of spring and winter maize crops. Dr. Dhillon gave new concepts and breeding methods for cross pollinated crops and new analysis of quantitative-genetic data. The improved germplasm developed has been used in various breeding programs in India and abroad; and breeding methods developed by him are included in text books authored by Indian and foreign authors.

During his stint as the PAU Director Research, Dr Dhillon gave major focus on the need-based research on rational use of natural resource base, plant biotechnology, food technology (integration with processing and nutrition), crop improvement, cultivation of banana, grapes, kinnow, turmeric, and celery, net-house cultivation of vegetables, bio-fuels. His initiative in creating IPR (Intellectual Property Right) and Technology Commercialization Cell and Inter-Departmental Research Planning and Monitoring Committees across colleges has generated impact in terms of filing patents. He developed/ strengthened linkages with industry particularly that of seed, food processing and farm machinery. Dr. Dhillon vigorously pursued the mobilization of additional grants by the funding organizations and played a pivotal role in getting the Special Grant of Rs.100 crores from GOI/ICAR.
