Professional Awards

Distinguished Achievement Award in ExtensionThis award recognizes outstanding contributions in extension entomology. This year's winner, Dr. Frederick P. Baxendale, is a professor and extension specialist in the Department of Entomology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He completed his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in entomology at Texas A&M University, and earned his B.S. degree in entomology at Cornell University. Baxendale has extensive experience as an extension educator and research scientist. His extension responsibilities include educational programming in the areas of turfgrass and horticultural entomology, urban pest management, 4-H and youth entomology, and, most recently, forensic entomology. Baxendale has served as a panelist on the popular, long-running Backyard Farmer television program (now completing its 55th consecutive season) since 1985.

Baxendale is widely recognized for his expertise in the environmentally-responsible management of turfgrass and landscape insect pests, and he is a leading authority on the insects and mites associated with buffalograss. His research focuses on the development of integrated pest management strategies for insects affecting turfgrasses, native grasses, and horticultural plantings in Nebraska. He is currently investigating the biology, ecology, and management of arthropods associated with buffalograss and sw
