Dr. Sanjun Gu, the Lincoln University (LU) State Vegetable Specialist for Missouri, has left LU effective January 15, 2013. Dr. Gu will be working for North Carolina A&T University located in Greensboro, NC. During his time at LU (5 years), he worked tirelessly to assist farmers with expertise in commercial vegetable production. He was successful with numerous grants and was active with two LU farm programs (Small Farm; Outreach and Assistance for Socially Disadvantaged Farmers and Ranchers). His most recent work included evaluations of new tomato / pepper varieties in the field and in high tunnels, and grafting of tomatoes and watermelons. The work that Dr. Gu conducted in the 5 years he was at LU is impressive. Congratulations, Dr. Gu, on your new position with North Carolina A&T State University. You will be missed!
Lincoln University is currently looking for a new State Horticulture Specialist. We hope the new Specialist will be on board in the Fall, 2013.
