Petrovic awarded Good Medal by NYSNLA



Horticulture professor emeritus Marty Petrovic was awarded the 2016 George L. Good Gold Medal of Horticulture by the New York State Nursery and Landscape Association (NYSNLA) at the New York State Fair August 25.

The award is NYSNLA’s highest honor, recognizing an individual who has made outstanding contributions to horticulture in the state of New York.

Petrovic, a turf specialist who retired in 2015, is best known for his groundbreaking work on the fate and impacts of pesticides and fertilizers applied to lawns and other turf areas. The Gold Medal Award was renamed to honor George Good after his death in 2008. Good spent his entire career at Cornell University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and was an active, engaged member of NYSNLA and received the Gold Medal of Horticulture himself in 1997.

Congratulations Marty!
