BYU professor named fellow of American Society of Agronomy

Professor and soil scientist Richard E. Terry of the Plant and Wildlife Sciences Department at Brigham Young University has been selected as a 2011 American Society of Agronomy Fellow.

ASA has been selecting outstanding members as Fellows since 1924. Members of the Society nominate worthy colleagues based on their professional achievements and service. Only 0.3 percent of the society’s active and emeritus members may be elected Fellow.

Terry has authored or co-authored more than 70 refereed journal articles, 28 book chapters and one scholarly book, and he has presented more than 120 papers with his students at national and international meetings.

A BYU alumnus and a member of the faculty since 1980, Terry received his master’s and doctoral degrees from Purdue University.
