A Mississippi State University plant physiologist was honored for significantly contributing to the understanding of cotton physiology, growth and development. K.

Mike Collins, director of the Division of Plant Sciences at the University of Missouri, nominated Reddy for the award.
Reddy’s nominators praised his contributions to cotton physiology, particularly in abiotic stress responses and cotton modeling.
A 23-year veteran at MSU, Reddy has authored or co-authored more than 150 publications, including 106 refereed journals and 28 book chapters.
Reddy earned his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees from Sri Venkateswara University in Tirupati, India.
