In recognition of her extraordinary commitment to the fields of agriculture and science, horticulture professor Susan Brown was recently honored at the 2014 “Women of Distinction” ceremony at the State Capitol.

Brown, director of Cornell’s Fruit and Vegetable Genomics Initiative and associate director of the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station (NYSAES), is at the forefront of apple development and genetic modification and has been recognized internationally for her efforts. She was nominated by State Senator Mike Nozzolio.

“It was a privilege to recognize Dr. Susan Brown for her knowledge, skills and expertise as a scientist, as well as her extraordinary work at Cornell University’s Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, N.Y.,” Nozzolio told the Seneca Daily. “Dr. Brown’s research has centered on the production of apples and ways to extend the shelf life of the product. As a result, the apple industry has been growing and expanding in ways that benefit the industry and consumers.”
