Scientists Named to Agricultural Research Service Science Hall of Fame
Tuesday, 2014/09/30 | 08:07:31

USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) granted Science Hall of Fame recognition for four scientists involved in soybean genomics, sustainable farming, poultry disease control, and crop micronutrients. One of them is Perry Cregan, research head of the ARS Soybean Genomics and Improvement Laboratory. He has been the driving force behind the development of new tools to identify, describe, and map soybean, wheat, common bean genes for economically significant characteristics such as resistance to pests and diseases, stress tolerance, increased yield, and improved seed quality.

 

Ross Welch was also recognized for his contributions in research on the functions of zinc, iron, nickel, and other micronutrients in sustaining plant health and productivity. His discoveries showed the relevance of using plant breeding and fertilization to improve micronutrient concentrations in stable food crops, especially for developing countries where malnutrition has been a rampant concern.
