March 25, 2022

We are excited to announce that Amy Raudenbush has received the Distinguished Early Career Extension Professional Award. Amy began her role as a Research Associate working with Kelley Tilmon in the Agronomic Crops lab in the Department of Entomology in 2016. Since starting her role, Amy has authored, designed, and produced numerous extension deliverables distributed throughout Ohio and other universities in the North Central region. These deliverables include field guides, ID cards, magazine bulletins, postcards and videos on common pests or beneficial insects of soybean and corn for growers and extension educators. In addition, Amy leads a trapping and monitoring network for Western bean cutworm, a major pest of corn in Ohio. This network involves collaborating with extension educators throughout the state to collect data and author weekly C.O.R.N. newsletter articles during the peak season to keep growers informed and up to date on the pest’s distribution in Ohio counties. Prior to her work at Ohio State University, Amy worked as a Program Coordinator of the Blueberry Integrated Pest Management Program at Rutgers University. Amy's main interests revolve around applied integrated pest management strategies in field crops, specifically trapping/monitoring and pesticide efficacy. Amy holds a B.S. in Biology from Rutgers University and a M.S. in Entomology from Kansas State University.
