As a result of a recent frenzy of
interviews and faculty meetings, the
Agronomy Department is very
pleased to welcome not one,...not
two,....but three new faculty mem-
bers. This exceptional bounty of tal-
ent has been hired to fill a forage
breeder-agronomist position at the
North Florida Research and Educa-
tion Center (NFREC), Quincy/
Marianna, and two weed scientist
positions on the Gainesville cam-
pus. The hiring of new faculty is one
of the most important things done
in a department, and the process is
rigorous and thorough (I know, hav-
ing been on both sides of a search
and screen committee, Ed).

See "The Twelve Step Program
for Hiring an Agronomy Faculty
Member" later in this issue.

Ann Soffes-Blount
Ann Soffes-Blount (known as
Annie) assumed the responsibilities
of Forage Breeder and Agronomist
at the NFREC on October 2nd, 1998.
Since 1988, Ann has served as a
Biological Scientist in the small
grains and soybean breeding pro-
gram under the direction of Ron
The extension component of her
new post allows Ann to receive ex-
tension credit for all of her previous
volunteer 4-H activities in North
Florida. Ann is also familiar with

Gainesville because she received
both her graduate degrees, M.S.
(directed by Gordon Prine, 1980)
and Ph.D. (with Ken Quesenberry,
1984), at UF and she was a Post-
doctoral Research Associate with
Tom Sinclair and Knell Hinson from
1983 to 1988.
With a 70% research and 30%
extension assignment focused on
perennial and annual legumes and
grasses, Ann will be part of a multi-
disciplinary team oriented toward
solving the major problems of the
North Florida and Southeastern U. S.
forage production systems. Once
economically and environmentally
sustainable approaches are devel-
oped, it will be Ann's responsibility
to disperse this information both to
the research community and, most
significantly to clientele, through
extension publications, presenta-
tions, and field-demonstrations.
This should be a straightforward as-
signment for Ann because she has
published over 60 papers and ar-
ticles, and has frequently presented
results of plant breeding trials (in-
cluding the release of five small
grain varieties and two forage acces-
sions) to growers and the general
This is a new faculty position to
the Agronomy Department and it
was established to support the de-
veloping Beef Unit located on over
900 acres of land near Marianna.
Ann has had plenty of practical ex-
perience with forages and beef cattle
as she has lived on a working beef
cattle operation during most of her
time in Quincy. And she must have
seen many cattle out-on-the-range
while living in Texas, where she
completed her B.S. degree (1978) in
Crop Science at Texas A & M Uni-
versity. While there, she also re-
ceived a Certificate of Tropical
Studies, a natural area of interest

having been raised on a family farm
on St. Croix that served as an ex-
periment station for culture of a va-
riety of tropical crops for the U.S.
Virgin Islands Department of Agri-
Ann's cattle ranch life in Quincy
resulted from marrying the farmer-
next-door, Clyde, who she says had
his eye on her "back 40 acres and
her John Deere tractor." Their five
year old daughter, Evie, is a natural
and experienced cattle-handler and
presumably shares her mother's love
of horse riding. In addition to rais-
ing Evie, Australian Shepherds,
Morgan horses, and hay, Ann likes
to bake, and is not beyond asking
her colleagues to test brownies made
with various grains. They have con-
cluded that there is a good reason
why we use wheat flour!
Although not exactly a new-
comer to the Agronomy Depart-
ment, we are very pleased to wel-
come Ann to this faculty position
and look forward to many years of
enjoyable and productive coopera-

Greg MacDonald
Our second faculty arrival, due
to start on November 30th, is no
stranger to UF either because Greg
MacDonald also received his M.S.
(1991) and Ph.D. (1994) degrees
from the Agronomy Department.
Greg will be filling the Weed Sci-
entist Agronomic Crops position
which has 70% research and 30%
teaching responsibilities. This was
the position vacated by Greg's
former major professor, Donn Shil-
ling, who became Director of the
West Florida REC in Jay earlier this
year. Greg did try to make a break
from UF getting as far as Tifton, GA,
for a four year stint as Assistant Pro-
fessor at the University of Georgia,
but it must be hard to make a Bull-

dog out of a Gator because he is
delighted to be returning to Florida.
Greg certainly enjoyed his work
in Tifton, which had an emphasis on
applied research and extension in
horticultural and agronomic weed
management, and he was very pro-
ductive in terms of generating over
$100,000 in extra-mural funding
and being involved in over 50 ex-
tension publications. Greg is keen
to return to Gainesville because he
appreciates the main campus envi-
ronment and he wants to have more
interactions with students. He also
wishes to be a part of the weed sci-
ence program at UF, which includes
at least 16 faculty from 5 depart-
ments, and which Greg believes has
great potential as a nationally-rec-
ognized program.
The teaching assignments of this
position will undoubtedly allow
Greg to spend much of his time with
students, and to make positive
strides to enhance the weed science
courses available at UF. One of his
first objectives is to confer with col-
leagues to plan the best combination
of weed science undergraduate and
graduate courses. The latter would
include a combination of specialized
herbicide topics and preparations of
the Weed Team for participation in
Weed Science Society competitions.
Greg is also expected to supervise
graduate students in his research

field which will include an exami-
nation of physio-chemical and en-
vironmental factors influencing her-
bicidal activity, particularly as used
in agricultural ecosystems. And
Greg's extension experience from
UGA will not be wasted because he
looks forward to working closely
with the new weed science exten-
sion specialist in the years ahead.
Greg's agricultural experiences
date back to working as a teenager
on the dairy and vegetable farms of
his grandfather and uncles in New
York and having a father who was a
research support specialist. These
interests not only led Greg to a B.S.
in Vegetable Crops at Cornell Uni-
versity (1986), but his familiarity
with heavy equipment has allowed
him to hot-wire at least one back-
hoe in a marsh on Rodman Reser-
voir! Amongst other hobbies, such
as bowling and fishing, Greg in-
cludes the restoration of antique gar-
den tractors, but we may bet that he
won't have much time to attend to
them in the near future.
As if starting a new job and
moving house are not enough life-
changing events for the end of one
year, Greg and his wife Mickey are
expecting their first child in Decem-
ber, so there is no doubt that their
hands will be full for a while. For-
tunately, Mickey's family lives in the
Gainesville area, so perhaps the tim-
ing for this particular move couldn't
be better. We certainly wish Greg
and Mickey all the best in the busy
months and exciting years ahead,
and we look forward to their partici-
pation in departmental and commu-
nity activities.

Joyce Tredaway
Arriving last, but certainly not
least, will be Joyce Tredaway who
plans to move to Gainesville in the
New Year, and start at UF on Janu-

ary 18th. Joyce will be coming to live
in Florida for the first time, she has
no prior association with UF, and
she will be graduating with her
Ph.D. in December, so she really
will be a "new" faculty member in
all respects. Joyce will join us in the
Extension Weed Specialist Agro-
nomic Crops position (previously
held by Danny Colvin), which has

70% extension and 30% research
responsibilities. This is a very im-
portant position in our weed science
program and Joyce will be expected
to develop and implement a state-
wide extension program which em-
phasizes agronomic field and forage
crops, but which can include road-
side and non-crop areas when ap-
Joyce is a native of Alabama
who completed her B.S. (1993) and
M.S. (1995) degrees at Auburn Uni-
versity. She has produced two jour-
nal papers from her M.S. thesis
which compared spray application
systems on the efficacy of herbicides
applied to cotton. Joyce defended
her Ph.D. dissertation, in which she
investigated site-specific weed man-
agement techniques, on November
13th at the University of Tennessee.
Although there are a few more im-
portant issues in life than SEC foot-
ball rivalries (or so it is said), it was
quite a relief to some to learn that
Joyce is not a great supporter of UT

sports but remains a loyal Auburn
fan. She has doubts that she can be
fully converted to Gator fanaticism
but time will tell.....
Regardless of her questionable
sporting alliances, Joyce leaves no
question about her passion for agri-
culture and extension programs.
Joyce spent much of her youth on
her family's cattle ranch and subse-
quently worked with many crops
including cotton, corn, soybeans,
peanuts, tobacco, pecans, and wheat.
Through her graduate programs she
developed an interest in agricultural
engineering, which included run-
ning tractors and combines, and
building customized spray-rigs for
her research. Joyce is clearly enthu-
siastic when she anticipates what
will be included in her extension ac-
tivities. She relishes the opportuni-
ties to provide training for county
faculty, farmers, growers, and stu-
dents, through a variety of com-
puter- and video- based technolo-
gies, traditional publications, and
especially through workshops, field-
days, and demonstration plots. Joyce
has a genuine interest in helping
farmers, and undoubtedly she has
the cheerful and friendly disposition
needed to do that effectively.
Getting to know Gainesville,
and establishing exactly what is
needed in the extension program
will certainly keep Joyce busy once
she gets here, but she has some di-
verse hobbies to relax with, ranging
from cross-stitching to hunting and
tennis. She may have to look a little
further afield to satisfy her fondness
for snow-skiing or perhaps she will
be persuaded to get nearer to some
real 'gators' by exploring skiing of
the aquatic kind! We hope that Joyce
has a smooth transition to our De-
partment and community, and we
hope she enjoys many happy pro-
ductive years here.

The 12 Step Program for Hiring

an Agronomy Faculty Member

Addition of new faculty members to a department shapes the future of that department for many years to come. Hiring of high quality
faculty members is critical to building and maintaining strong programs in teaching, research, and extension. By following these steps,
UF/IFAS ensures that we identify, recruit, and hire the very best candidates that are available for each new faculty position.

SFaculty meet and agree on priority for specialization of next new
position and a position description is prepared.

2 IFAS administration releases faculty line to unit for specified position. (Out of near
70 position requests from units, IFAS expects to fill only about 7 programmatic fac-
ulty lines in 1999.)

SDept. Chair appoints Search and Screen Committee Chair and members (including female and
minority representatives). Time of meetings of S & S committee are posted seven days in advance
and minutes are available upon request.

4 S & S committee refines job description and prepares advertisements. These are approved by Dept. Chair and IFAS
personnel office. Ads must include statements about affirmative action and Florida's sunshine laws.

5 Ads placed in at least two appropriate journals, newsletters, or maga-
zines (e.g., Science, Agronomy News, Chronicle of Higher Educa-
tion, etc.) Applicants are asked to submit letter of application, C.V.,
official transcripts, and 3 to 5 names, or letters, of references.

6 S & S committee identifies relevant experts from around the U.S. to nominate quali-
fied female and minority candidates. S & S committee prepares lists of possible
female, minority, and alumni candidates. All nominees are invited to apply.

7 After application deadline, S & S committee reviews applicants and develops a short list of the 2 or
3 top candidates to interview.

8 Candidates visit campus or Research and Education Centerto meet with: Dept. Chair or Center Director; represen-
tatives from relevant IFAS Deans' and benefits offices; unit faculty; S & S committee; and to present a research
seminar and either a talk about extension issues or a mini-lecture. Candidates are shown relevant facilities and meet
with faculty for lunch and dinner.
9 S & S committee evaluates each candidate and reports strengths
and weakensses to Dept. Chair. Faculty also complete indepen-
dent evaluation forms and meet as a group to discuss candidates.

10 Dept. Chair takes input from all sources and makes a hiring recommendation to the
IFAS Deans and Vice President.

11 Once hiring recommendation is approved, Dept. Chair offers position to candidate and salary and
start-up funds are negotiated. If position is not accepted, offer is made to second choice candidate
or Dept. Chair discusses with S & S committee the need to re-advertize the position.

12 Dept. Chair and candidate agree on a starting date and an employment contract is signed. Oh, Happy Department!

After 38 years as a faculty member of the Agronomy Department,
where he worked in the area of weed science and plant growth regula-
tors, Merrill Wilcox retired on October 31, 1998. A native of Wiscon-
sin, raised in Maryland, Merrill came to the University of Florida in
1960, and filed his first patent on an environmentally-friendly citrus
abscisson agent in 1972. The first patent to produce royalties for the
University of Florida was for a tobacco sucker control chemical that
Merrill filed in 1974. This chemical, sold under the name of Prime+, is
still part of the standard sucker control program used by flue-cured
tobacco farmers in the U.S. Merrill's research also involved sucrose
enhancement of sugarcane, preharvest curing aids for tobacco, quality
improvement in peanuts, harvest aids for cotton, ripening agents for
tomatoes, and citrus abscisson. Merrill and his co-inventors, Ben Whitty
and John Taylor, have continued to file and receive patents, and plan to
file two more by 1999.
Merrill taught four courses at the University of Florida, where stu-
dent evaluations rated them well above the average of the department
and college. The last course he taught received particularly high rat-
ings, and was the first patent course in IFAS and the first to be taught at
the University of Florida by a member of the Patent Bar. A social hon-
oring Merrill's retirement was held on October 30th in the Friend's of
Music room at the UF Auditorium. In retirement Merrill and his wife
Laura, a former secretary in the Agronomy Deparatment, plan to re-
main in Gainesville.



Soil & Crop Science Society Meeting

The 57th annual meeting of the Soil & Crop Science Society of Florida
was held at Daytona Beach on September 16 18. The meeting featured a
special symposium on contributions of UF/IFAS cultivar development pro-
grams to Florida agriculture, and two graduate student paper presentation
sessions with presentations from over 20 students. Ken Quesenberry, Pro-
fessor of forage breeding in the Agronomy Department, served as 1997-98
President of the Soil & Crop Science Society of Florida. At the annual
banquet, the Proceedings of the 57th meeting were dedicated to James
Davidson, Vice President Emeritus of IFAS. Charles Eno, Professor Emeritus
in Soil & Water Science and Al Kretschmer, Jr. were announced as recipi-
ents of honorary lifetime memberships in the Society. Tom Kucharek, Pro-
fessor of Plant Pathology, was installed as President for 1998-99 and David
Calvert, Professor of Soil & Water Science was selected as President-elect
and Program Chair.

Tail Gator

On the afternoon of September 12th, prior to the Florida vs. Northeast
Louisiana football game, the second annual Tail Gator event was held on
the lawn outside McCarty Hall. This event provides an opportunity for de-
partments and units within the College of Agriculture to display informa-
tion about their programs. Alumni, friends, students, faculty, and football
fans visiting the Agronomy tent were treated to packets of peanuts and (in
the unbiased opinion of Jerry Bennett) the best exhibit. UF is a young uni-
versity and it is exciting to encourage alumni to participate in building new
traditions. Many faculty, staff, and students helped to prepare and attend
the display but special thanks are due to Ken Buhr, Tito French, Stuart
Rymph, and Randall Stocker.



Ken Boote spent one week in
July in Cotonov, Benin to visit with
scientists Dr. Detongnon and Mr.
Adomov to consult on Peanut
CRSP, to evaluate peanut experi-
ments conducted in Benin, and dis-
cuss ways to improve production.

Alison Fox and Randall Stocker
presented papers in September at the
10th International Symposium on
Aquatic Weeds hosted by the Euro-
pean Weed Research Society in
Lisbon, Portugal.

ClifHiebsch was in Addis
Abba, Ethiopia for two weeks in
October and November to join a
group of 11 scientists from UF, Uni-
versity of Colorado, Kyoto Univer-
sity, and Awassa Agricultural Re-
search Center to present a proposed
outline of research and development
activities for the enset systems of
Ethiopia to several potential donors.
