WESTMINSTER, Colorado – 20 June 2024 – The Weed Science Society of America (WSSA)
celebrates Scott Senseman, Ph.D., associate vice president, Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station, for the prestigious recognition bestowed on him recently as an Honorary Fellow by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). In April, the AAAS Council elected Dr. Senseman to join its 2023 Fellows for “distinguished contributions in research, teaching and administration in the field of agronomy, particularly in residue chemistry, mode of action and environmental fate of herbicides in agricultural systems.”

“Scott is well deserving of this exemplary honor,” says Larry Steckel, Ph.D., University of
Tennessee Professor. “In addition to his substantial research to develop weed control strategies that help to produce more food, Scott and his research teams have helped develop groundbreaking ways to facilitate safe and efficient pesticide analysis from soil, water, and plant material, and determine how best to mitigate or eliminate their environmental impact.”

While at Texas A&M University, Dr. Senseman and his research teams conducted extensive
laboratory experiments to understand herbicide surface runoff and leaching, adsorption,
degradation, volatility, and uptake from soil, water and plants. While at the University at
Tennessee, he served as professor and department head of the Department of Plant Sciences before joining the administrative team at Oklahoma State University.
