Biennial Conference 2017 at MPUAT, Udaipur (Rajasthan)

A tribute to departed soule

Indian Society of Weed Science is in deep sense of shock to learn about the sad demise of Dr. T.V. Muniappa, who remained the President of the Society during 2011-12. The guidance and leadership provided by him as President during critical period of the Society will remain his immense contribution and will be remembered forever. The scientific fraternity and the students taught by him shall be immensely missing him.

Dr. Muniappa served the society in various positions such as the Editorial member of Indian Journal of Weed Science during 1995-1998; Joint Secretary (1999-2001); Vice President (2002-2004 and 2010-11). He also instituted an award for the Young Weed Scientists by contributing Rs one lakh.

Dr. Muniappa was the recipient of ISWS Fellow Award (2002) and Special Appreciation Award (2014) of ISWS. His dedication has helped the Society to achieve newer heights. His demise has created an irreparable loss to the Society.

We pray that his noble soul may rest in eternal peace, and give inner strength to the members of bereaved family to bear this loss.
