In acceptance of his ASHS Early Career Award prize, Noa Lincoln will have a forthcoming paper in HortTechnology entitled “Towards Standardized Leaf Sampling for Foliar Nutrient Concentrations in Breadfruit.”

Along with colleagues Ted Radovich, Alyssa Cho, and Eli Isele, Dr. Lincoln has established a vibrant research program focused on breadfruit, a traditional Pacific staple. Breadfruit has been named as one of the United Nation’s priority crops in recognition of its underutilized status and substantial potential to address global hunger, particularly in the tropics. Currently, there is a void of agronomic information on breadfruit, making farm management difficult and business investment a risky venture. Dr. Lincoln’s contribution to breadfruit’s potential is sure to aid in the global production of breadfruit by presenting initial nutrient management options.

Look for the paper in HortTechnology 29(4) in August 2019.
