Date:10/28/2009

MADISON, WI, OCTOBER 27, 2009 -- Worldwide leaders in agricultural research, science policy, and soil science will address emerging developments in plant and soil sciences as daily plenary lectures during the 2009 Annual Meetings of the American Society of Agronomy (ASA), Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), and Soil Science Society of America (SSSA), Nov. 1-5 in Pittsburgh, PA.The meeting will be held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA. The four daily plenary lecturers are:

Sunday, Nov. 1, 2009, 6:00 pm, Ballroom BC
ASA Plenary /E.T. & Vam York Distinguished Lecture
Gebisa Ejeta, Purdue University

Dr. Gebisa Ejeta is the recipient of the 2009 World Food Prize for his contributions in the production of sorghum, which have dramatically enhanced the food supply for millions of people in sub-Saharan Africa. He will present the 2009 E.T. & Vam York Distinguished ASA Plenary Lecture, "Fueling the Resurgence of Our Purpose-Driven Sciences," on Sunday, Nov. 1, from 6:00-7:00pm. His personal journey would lead him from a childhood in a one-room thatched hut in rural Ethiopia to scientific acclaim as a distinguished professor, plant breeder, and geneticist at Purdue University. Ejeta's scientific breakthroughs in breeding drought-tolerant and Striga-resistant sorghum have combined with his persistent efforts to foster economic development and the empowerment of subsistence farmers through the creation of agricultural enterprises in rural Africa.

Monday, Nov. 2, 2009, 8:00-9:30 am, Ballroom BC
