The Bailey Award is given to the author(s) of the best paper presented at the APRES Annual Meeting. The Bailey Award was established in honor of Wallace K. Bailey, an eminent peanut scientist.
The award is determined through a two-step process whereby nominations are selected from the oral paper presentations at the APRES Annual Meeting. One nominee is selected from each session category. Nominees are asked to submit a manuscript based on the information presented during the respective meeting. The winner is decided after critiquing the submitted manuscripts.
