Noble Foundation Scientist Recognized for Alfalfa Disease Research

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 10:10:16 CDT

Noble Foundation Scientist Recognized for Alfalfa Disease Research Noble Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow Chakradhar Mattupalli, Ph.D., has been nominated as one of five American Phytopathological Society (APS) Schroth Faces of the Future.

Mattupalli’s research focuses on using aerial imaging techniques to evaluate how Phymatotrichopsis root rot spreads in alfalfa fields and the impact this can have on production.

“We congratulate Dr. Mattupalli on this well-deserved honor,” said Zengyu Wang, Ph.D., Noble Foundation Forage Improvement Division director. “He focuses his research on using technology advancements to provide tools for agricultural producers to make profitable decisions.”

Phymatotrichopsis root rot is prevalent in Oklahoma, and it can devastate alfalfa production greatly by reducing the plant’s production and lifespan. Alfalfa is one of the most profitable crops in Oklahoma, but it is an expensive crop to plant and care for.

“I am honored that my contributions and achievements have been recognized by the APS and my peers. This is a career milestone and one that I truly appreciate,” Mattupalli said. “I look forward to continuing my part in the Noble Foundation’s advancing research and applying it to the problems facing agriculture in our region and around the world.”

Mattupalli works in the Forage Improvement Division mycology and plant pathology laboratory under the direction of Carolyn Young, Ph.D. The Schroth Faces of the Future Symposium is designed to acknowledge up-and-coming researchers shaping the future of their respective scientific discipline.
