Mississippi State University has named Greenville, Miss., native, Tom Eubank as soybean weed scientist and agronomist at the Delta Research and Extension Center in Stoneville, Miss.

Eubank has 15 years experience as an agronomist working with Delta farmers and for Mississippi State University. He shares a dual appointment with Mississippi State Extension Service and the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Extension Service.

“We are excited to have Dr. Eubank coming on board as an assistant professor. His expertise with soybeans and weed science is greatly needed, and will be a valuable asset to our growers,” said Steve Martin, DREC head.

Eubank will receive his doctorate in weed science from Mississippi State in May. He has worked at DREC since 2006, and fills the position vacated by Dan Poston in 2008.
