2005 Master Agronomist

Larry Null

Larry Null is recognized as an influential leader in many areas of agriculture across the state of Oklahoma. Larry graduated in 1958 from Oklahoma State University with a degree in Agricultural Economics. He routinely serves on many local and statewide committees related to agriculture and agriculture policy because these issues are very important to him.

Larry's father, Stuart Null, began selling registered and certified seed in 1950 and was recognized as a Master Agronomist in 1956. Null Seed Farms reflects Larry's character by actively supporting the wheat variety trials in Kiowa County, as well as across the state. Being one of the leading seed dealers in Southwest Oklahoma, many producers look to him for advice and  recommendations. Null Seed Farms recently volunteered to sponsor the youth wheat show  awards at the Kiowa County Fair, which shows their commitment to the future of agriculture in Oklahoma.

Active involvement in agriculture is evident by Larry's participation in variety trials in cotton and wheat production. Recently, J.C. Banks worked with Larry on a no-till cotton trial. Larry and J.C. have worked together for several years on innovative cotton production methods and variety trials. Larry has contributed to successful extension programs by sponsoring wheat and cotton field tours for many years. He also routinely provides seed for sorghum and wheat test plots.

Larry has a long history of service to Oklahoma agriculture, Oklahoma State University, and the Plant and Soil Sciences Department. He is not only a member of organizations such as Kiowa County Cattlemen's Association and the Kiowa County OSU Alumni Association, but he has also served as President of both of these organizations. Larry also served as Director of the OSU Alumni Association for 10 years. He has served two terms on the Board of Directors for the  Oklahoma Crop Improvement Association. His service to OCIA culminated in his receiving the
Premier Award in 2002, which is the highest honor awarded by OCIA.

Recognition for support of agriculture, is not new to the Null famiy. tn 1993, the Null family was recognized as the Kiowa County Farm Family of the year.
