About the Author
An internationally recognized expert in conservation plants, W. Curtis Sharp grew up on a small farm in Southern West Virginia. His years of experience in the development and use of conservation plants provide the ideal background and perspective to tell this success story. Curtis learned his first lessons about plants and nutrients at a young age when listening to a county agent tell his dad, “If you expect to send these boys to college you better get some super phosphate on those pastures”. His dad heeded the advice and before long Kentucky bluegrass flourished replacing the weedy broom sedge. After earning a BS degree from West Virginia University, a Masters in Agronomy from Pennsylvania State University, and two years military service he started his career with USDA, NRCS at the plant materials center, Big Flats, New York. He worked at positions in California, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, international assignments, and Washington, DC where he retired as National Leader of the Plant Materials Program. His work and that of hundreds of others are chronicled in his 494 page history about Conservation Plant: A USDA Success Story.
