About the Presenter

Dr. Johnie Jenkins, Research Geneticist with the USDA-ARS in Starkville, MS, was honored with the 2013 NAPB Lifetime Achievement Award. Johnie joined ARS in 1961 and has made and continues to make significant contributions to the science of plant breeding. Dr. Jenkins has been recognized in many other venues during his career, including induction into the USDA Hall of Fame in 2007. Johnie has been a leader in developing interdisciplinary teams to research host plant resistance in cotton, an effort that has brought about reduction of damage by several insect pests and nematodes. He pioneered the understanding of the effects of chemical differences among cotton strains on the variability of damage done by pests and performed seminal work on cotton fruiting, retention, and yield, developing the technique of "plant mapping" that is used throughout the industry today. Dr. Jenkins’ research has benefited the global cotton community through his mentoring of 71 graduate students from 12 countries.
