Cliff Snyder recognized at ASA Fellow

The Society has been electing members to the honor of Fellow since 1924. Only 0.3 percent of the active and emeritus members may be elected to Fellowship.

Snyder, who lives in Conway, Ark., joined the PPI staff as Mid-South director in 1995. In 2002, he became southeast director and now has responsibility for the Institute’s agronomic research and education programs in the states of Arkansas, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina.

A native of Denver, Snyder earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Arkansas and his Ph.D. from North Carolina State University. In 1984, he became a state soils specialist with the Cooperative Extension Service in Arkansas, with responsibility for leading and developing statewide programs in ag lime and micronutrient education.

Later, his responsibilities were expanded to include support of the state soil testing program and leadership in the delivery of soil test results and recommendation to clients in the state. He had a similar role with the cotton-monitoring program and has conducted numerous soil fertility test programs and demonstrations with university researchers, involving a wide array of crops, plus forestry and fruit and vegetable production.

Snyder serves as co-chair of the Southern Soil Fertility Conference, was the 2000 Division S-8 Chair of the Soil Science Society of America and has been active in several other profession organizations and in his community.
