GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Charles Moss, a professor in the University of Florida’s food and resource economics department, recently received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Southern Agricultural Economics Association.

The award was presented at the association’s annual meeting in Orlando earlier this month.

“It is always somewhat humbling for people you admire to talk about your career and the contributions you have made,” said Moss, a member of UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. “It motivates me to continue asking interesting questions and to continue to challenge myself.”

Moss has more than 20 years of experience researching and teaching agricultural finance as well as nearly 100 publications in scientific journals. Additionally, he has supervised six doctoral students and two master’s students.

He has served as co-editor of the Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics and was a member of the editorial board of that journal and the Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics.

He has written two textbooks related to agricultural economics, co-authored another, edited six volumes and written 24 chapters.

He received his doctoral degree in agricultural finance, agricultural policy, macroeconomics, and quantitative methods from Purdue University; and his master’s degree and two bachelor’s degrees from Oklahoma State University in agricultural finance, agricultural policy, macroeconomics, and quantitative methods and agricultural economics and accounting, respectively. He joined the UF faculty in 1987.

The Southern Agricultural Economics Association encourages the study and understanding of agricultural economics and promotes its application to problems in the southern U.S.
