Graduate Students:

The Department of Crop and Soil Sciences has established a tradition where each spring students who have published a first-author, peer-reviewed product are recognized for this important accomplishment with a ‘mug award’.  Yes—it really is a mug, but a classy one, emblazoned with a wrapper like the one attached containing the article citation and a key figure or table from the manuscript. The venue for “Mugging” (i.e., presentation of the awards) will be announced later and may occur at seminar or a special spring meeting of the graduate students.

We would like to honor you and recognize your accomplishment. If you have published a first-author, peer reviewed manuscript in 2016 or early 2017 please reply to this message as soon as possible, but no later than Friday, February 17, 2017, with the following information:

1)      Complete citation for the manuscript.

2)      Electronic copy of the publication.


Frank Ankerson was the recipient of the CAHNRS 2017 Classified Technical Staff Excellence Award.

Drew Lyon and the Dryland Cropping Systems Team were the recipients of the CAHNRS 2017 Team Interdisciplinary Award.
