SPIRIT OF LAND GRANT MISSION AWARD GOES TO C4E PROFESSOR
Agronomy professor Sylvie Brouder has received Purdue University’s 2010 Spirit of the Land-Grant Mission Award. The award recognizes the accomplishments of a faculty member in the College of Agriculture, College of Health and Human Sciences or School of Veterinary Medicine whose work integrates the University’s land-grant mission of discovery, extension and learning.
Brouder, who has gained a national and international reputation for her work in agro-ecology, was recognized for her applied research, which has led to the development of nutrient management guides and technologies that improve greenhouse gas emissions and water quality by helping to balance carbon and nitrogen in soil, plants, water and air.
