BOZEMAN – Perry Miller, Montana State University professor of cropping systems in the College of Agriculture, has been named a fellow in the American Society of Agronomy.

ASA members nominate worthy colleagues based on their professional achievements and meritorious service. Perry will be officially recognized as an ASA fellow during the society’s annual meeting in Long Beach, Calif., in November.

Miller, who joined the MSU faculty in 1998, specializes in semiarid crop rotations with emphasis on the role of annual legumes in increasing soil nitrogen availability in no-till farming regimes, particularly dryland wheat systems. He has authored and co-authored 70 peer-reviewed publications and helped mentor 30 grad students.

In addition to his work with MSU and activities with the American Society of Agronomy, Miller is a member of the Canadian Society of Agronomy, as well as the Crop Science Society of America.
