Berry group recognizes Pritts

Marvin PrittsNorth American Raspberry and Blackberry Growers’ Association (NARBA) presented its 2011 Distinguished Service Award to Marvin Pritts, berry specialist and chair of the Department of Horticulture, Cornell University, at it’s annual meeting January 5-7, 2011 in Savannah, Georgia.

NARBA President Nate Nourse noted Pritts’ “unselfish dedication to helping others.”

“It’s people like Marvin who inspire me to try to make improvements every year to produce a better crop,” said Nourse. “He also inspires me to be a better consultant and help growers produce a better crop and be more profitable. It is interesting to watch people like Marvin, who attentively listen to growers and use their wealth of knowledge to offer a solution to their problems. In the event there is no solution, they might submit a research proposal to address the problem.”
