Master Agronomist

Master Agronomist

The "Master Agronomist" award was initiated in 1947 as a means of recognizing individual farmers and ranchers in Oklahoma. The recipients have actively participated in agronomic education efforts and have contributed valuable public service because of their unique efforts in the fields of soil conservation, range management, or crop production. In many cases, these individuals have provided land, equipment, time, and effort in helping OSU carry out research and demonstrations on their farms. They have hosted field tours, and in some cases served as speakers on educational programs. These individuals are very active and involved in agriculture, and are highly respected leaders in agriculture, community, and church. Many serve on local, state, and regional committees, boards, and councils.
