Houston, Texas (PRWEB) July 9, 2009
The Nabor House Fraternity honors Jerry Stoller of Houston, Texas with the 2009 Good Nabor Alumni Award.
Jerry Stoller was selected as the 30th recipient of this prestigious recognition presented to an alumnus who exemplifies the goals and objectives of the Fraternity. The award presentation was held June 26 during the Nabor House Annual Meeting on the University of Illinois, Urbana, Illinois campus.
The Nabor House Fraternity Board of Directors established the Good Nabor Alumni Award in 1980. Selection criteria is based on professional achievements, leadership and accomplishments in community and civic activities, and holding fast to the ideals of Christian brotherhood and cooperation. Nabor House carries the message and the challenge for Nabors to unite in fellowship while rising and strengthen ideals and objectives in order to be of greater service in agricultural education, cooperation, and recreation.
Stoller earned a Bachelor of Science degree in agricultural science from the University of Illinois in 1959. Then in 1960 he completed a Master of Science degree in soil science from Cornell University.
"It is a humbling honor to stand among other elite recipients of the Good Nabor Alumni Award," comments Jerry Stoller. "My education has shaped where I am today, and I take pride in the university research that goes into Stoller products as farmers want to work with proven products while minimizing risks."
In the early 1990s, Stoller began researching the genetic expression of plants. The revolutionary approach produced from this research takes much of the guesswork out of maintaining healthy crops through the management of plant hormone levels and nutrients throughout the plant growth cycle, maintaining optimum hormone balance. Through this process, maximum genetic expression is achieved, resulting in healthier plants better able to withstand the effects of stress under various conditions.
Stoller founded StollerUSA in Houston, Texas, as the president and chief executive officer in 1970. Frequently traveling to the 40 countries where StollerUSA has a presence, Stoller is routinely commissioned for both public and private projects around the world, working with virtually all crops, from coffee to corn.
StollerUSA is dedicated to helping producers enhance yields by maximizing genetic expression. The result is in enhanced marketable yield; improved return-on-investment resistance to insects, nematodes and disease. Stoller products are proven to ensure optimum plant growth by maintaining appropriate hormone balance in combination with supporting nutrients, resulting in healthier, more productive crops that are better able to withstand stress and achieve their full genetic potential.
In agribusiness for more than 40 years, StollerUSA markets a full line of products to help farmers increase crop yield and quality. StollerUSA, headquartered in Houston, is actively engaged in basic and practical research to enhance crop productivity in more than 50 countries.
