Bellinder honored by NEWSS

Robin BellinderThe Northeast Weed Science Society (NEWSS ) awarded Department of Horticulture professor Robin Bellinder one of its highest honors, its Fellow Award. The NEWSS Awards Program says:

“A key goal of [Bellinder’s] applied research program has been to integrate weed management strategies that minimize herbicide use. Notable among these efforts has been research on innovative cultivation equipment. She has also been a leader in the use of interseeded cover crops and cover crop mulches for weed suppression. Other contributions include considerable efforts in the use of reduced tillage systems for several vegetable crops, efforts to provide growers with information on dose-response adjusted herbicide recommendations to minimize herbicide application, and the use of natural products as herbicides.”

Bellinder also engages growers and educators in diverse extension activities and participates in international consulting activities including a USDA-funded project to ameliorate declining yields in rice- and wheat-growing areas in India.
