The Agricultural Sustainability Institute at UC Davis is calling for nominations for the 2013 Eric Bradford and Charlie Rominger Agricultural Sustainability Leadership Award.
The award recognizes and honors individuals who have exhibited the leadership, work ethic and integrity epitomized by the late Eric Bradford, a livestock geneticist who gave 50 years of service to UC Davis, and the late Charlie Rominger, a fifth-generation Yolo County farmer and land preservationist.
Nominations are welcome for UC Cooperative Extension advisors and specialists as well as UC Davis graduate students, faculty members, and in special cases, alumni, for their work toward agricultural sustainability.
Award recipients receive a cash prize and may be invited to give a lecture hosted by the institute.
Nominations are due by Jan. 2, 2013. To nominate a leader in agricultural sustainability visit the ASI website.
The Bradford-Rominger award recipient will be announced in spring 2013.
