UGA’s Kemerait awarded Fulbright funding

University of Georgia plant pathologist and the expert behind the state’s risk management tool for peanut, PeanutRx, Bob Kemerait has been awarded funding as a Fulbright Specialist to lecture and advise through Mariano Marcos State University in the Philippines.

Kemerait will work in the Philippines in the last part of March and the first part of April, providing advice to small-scale farmers who have limited mechanization and other resources, but rely on peanut as one of their few cash-crop options. While there, he also will meet with graduate students, lecture in several venues and draft a proposal for on-going work.

While he currently isn’t working on a Peanut Innovation Lab project, Kemerait has worked with the program in the past.
