George L. Graef, Ph.D.
The Nebraska Soybean Board has created the University of Nebraska Presidential Chair in Soybean Breeding. Dr. George Graef, in UNL's Agronomy and Horticulture department, will be the first to hold the chair. The endowment provides support for Graef's program, which aims to improve yield and develop new soybean traits for farmers in Nebraska and other growers worldwide.
Three million dollars has been invested by the Nebraska Soybean Board to create the first Presidential Chair position at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus.
