March 1, 1956 – June 20, 2015
The day we begin to take our agricultural legacy for granted is the day that we will begin to lose it.
– President Elson S. Floyd
Elson Floyd was very supportive of WSU’s long-standing tradition of outstanding teaching, research, and extension in organic agriculture. He was proud of WSU being the first university to have an organic agriculture major and the largest organic teaching farm in the nation.
– John Reganold, Regents Professor of Soil Science & Agroecology
