MSU research professor named crop science fellow

A member of the Mississippi State University Plant and Soil Science Department has been named a Fellow of the Crop Science Society of America.

Research professor K. Raja Reddy received the honor at the society’s recent annual meeting. The Fellow designation is the highest honor the 4,500-member organization confers on its members. Reddy was one of just 10 selected for the honor in 2006.

The society looks for well-rounded, experienced candidates when selecting Fellows, said Steven L. Fales, president of CSSA and professor of agronomy at Iowa State University.

“CSSA chooses individuals who are committed to, and have excelled in, investigative competency, education and service,” Fales said.

Reddy’s research at MSU focuses on environmental control of plant growth and development, crop simulation model development and applications and global change biology and remote sensing applications in natural resource management. He also teaches graduate courses on environmental plant physiology and global change biology.

The MSU professor earned his doctorate and other university degrees at India’s Venkateswara University. In addition to CSSA, he is active in the American Society of Agronomy and other professional organizations and was named the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station Worker of the Year for 2006.
