Arkansas rice breeder honored

Anna Myers McClung, ARS Dale Bumpers National Rice Research Center, Stuttgart, Ark., has been honored for the development of eight rice varieties resulting in new and improved processed foods, the capture of value-added markets, and expansion of the organic rice industry.

The Agricultural Research Service recognized some of its most innovative scientists and research partners at the agency’s recent Technology Transfer Awards Program in Beltsville, Md.

The awards go to individuals or groups who have done outstanding work in transferring technology to users outside ARS, the principal intramural scientific research agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

“ARS places great importance on making sure that our findings don’t just languish in the laboratory, but are translated into useful products that benefit consumers,” said Edward B. Knipling, ARS administrator. “The winners of this year’s technology transfer awards represent outstanding examples of that commitment in the areas of animal health, natural resources management, food product development, and food safety.”
