Michigan State University Geological Sciences professor Bruno Basso was recently elected a 2015 Fellow of the Soil Science Society of America for his contributions to agronomy through education, national and international service and research.
Basso’s research integrates crop modeling with remote sensing and unmanned aerial vehicles to understand variability of crop yield at field and landscape scale. Basso has participated as principal investigator and co-principal investigator in several international projects. He is the author of more than 150 scientific publications and holds an adjunct position at the Queensland University of Technology in Australia. He is also a Fellow of the American Society of Agronomy.
"Being selected for this prestigious award gratifies me for the hard work and passion I have for science,” said Basso. “Awards are like sparks that inspire me to constantly advance in science so we can live in a better and more sustainable world."
Fellow is the highest recognition bestowed by the Soil Science Society of America. Members of the society nominate worthy colleagues based on their professional achievements and meritorious service.
Basso will be formally recognized at the SSSA awards ceremony on Nov. 18 during the scientific society’s International Annual Meeting.
