For the past 19 years, Julia Gaskin has worked to prove that conservation tillage and cover crops don’t have to be dirty words when it comes to conventional farming.
Through her work with University of Georgia Cooperative Extension, U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Southern Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program and Georgia Organics, Gaskin has worked with farmers to incorporate methods associated with organic agriculture into traditional farming practices.
Dr. Sherrier will join the department in early summer, as former head Donn Shilling returns to the faculty. She is currently a professor of plant and soil sciences at the University of Delaware and holds the first dual appointment with the Delaware Biotechnology Institute.
