This week the Weed Science Society of America honored nearly two dozen individuals for their outstanding contributions to the field of weed science.
The awards were presented during the organization's annual meeting, held this year in Baltimore, Md.
"These are true innovators from academia, government and private industry who are making a significant mark on our profession through their research, teaching, publishing and outreach," said Rodney Lym, president of WSSA and host of the award ceremonies.
Among the award winners were three from Cornell University. They are:
- Glenn J. Evans, Robin R. Bellinder and Russell R. Hahn who were honored for their published paper in Weed Technology: "An Evaluation of Two Novel Cultivation Tools." Evans is director of agricultural operations for the Cornell University Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva. Bellinder and Hahn work in research and extension at Cornell University.
