Landscape Report team recognized for interdisciplinary achievements

The Purdue Landscape Report team has received the Purdue Agriculture 2021 TEAM Award. An acronym for Together Everyone Achieves More, the college created the award in 1995 to recognize interdisciplinary team achievements of faculty and staff.

“Since 2018, the Purdue Landscape Report team has been providing science-based, consistent, timely information on how to keep plants healthy in an environmentally-sustainable manner,” Karen Plaut, the Glenn W. Sample Dean of Purdue Agriculture, said during the award presentation. “I know firsthand that stakeholders appreciate and are using the Landscape Report.”

The team has written more than 200 articles covering topics such as diseases, insects, weeds, herbicide use, plant selection, tree care and landscape maintenance. Their content is shared through an e-mail newsletter, blog, social media and interactive webinars.

Nursery and landscape Extension specialist Kyle Daniel leads the team. Other team members from the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture are Kirby Kalbaugh, Lori Jolly-Brown and Aaron Patton. Todd Abrahamson, Janna Beckerman, John Bonkowski and Tom Creswell represent the Department of Botany and Plant Pathology. Elizabeth Barnes and Cliff Sadof joined the team from the Department of Entomology. Lindsey Purcell represents the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources.

“The efforts of the Purdue Landscape Report team are a wonderful example of the impact of our land grant mission, especially with respect to Extension,” said Plaut.
