Ravi Teja Neelipally, PhD student in Dr. Sindhu Jagadamma’s group, was selected for the 2022 Hans Jenny Soil Field Trip Award from the Soil Science Society of America. In his research, Ravi is developing organic grain rotation systems to meet the needs of Tennessee farmers and facilitate their transition to organic agriculture. This award will fund his trip to the Rodale Institute near Kutztown, Pennsylvania, where the modern Organic Movement began 70 years ago. He is eager to learn about exciting new research and to discuss his own research with professionals and farmers. Way to go, Ravi Teja!
