ABC’s Curtis Receives High Honor from UC Davis

Bob Curtis, the Almond Board’s associate director, Agricultural Affairs, was awarded the UC Davis College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CA&ES) Award of Distinction. The award is presented annually in October during a College Celebration event to those whose contributions and achievements enhance the college’s ability to provide cutting-edge research, top-notch education and innovative outreach, according to a university news release.

Curtis was recognized as a Friend of the College for his work as a liaison between the almond industry and the agricultural research community.

“As a commodity representative, Bob has worked tirelessly to the betterment of industry-university partnerships that are at the heart of the CA&ES mission,” said Plant Sciences Professor Patrick Brown. “He has made many very significant contributions to the programs of faculty and Extension personnel throughout the UC system.”

Curtis’s impact has been felt beyond the almond industry. He chaired the California Commodity Committee (2007–2012), leading an effort to develop a strategy for promoting and funding commodity research and Extension. He was a member of a national specialty crop research team that outlined strategic research, extension and education priorities for the 2008 Farm Bill, which led to grant funding in areas such as nutrient budgeting, irrigation management, precision agriculture, rootstock evaluation and honey bee health.

Congratulations, Bob!
