Snider named Outstanding Young Cotton Physiologist

John Snider, a faculty member in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, was named the Outstanding Young Cotton Physiologist at the Beltwide Cotton Conferences held last month in
San Antonio, Texas.

The national honor was given to Snider, an assistant professor of crop and soil sciences on the college’s Tifton campus, primarily for his work on alternate irrigation methods. He received a plaque and a $1,000 cash award from Dow AgroSciences, which sponsors the program. The award was started to recognize cotton physiology researchers in the early part of their careers. It is modeled after the Outstanding Cotton Physiologist Award given at the same conference for career-long accomplishments.
