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.

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.
