"I like seeds... in each one of them is that urge of life waiting to express itself," said Manjit Misra, the director of the Seed Science Center. "They're so tiny but they are a powerhouse."
Misra is originally from India and in 1971 moved to Missouri where he "got two degrees and met his wife." He has been at Iowa State since 1979 and is receiving the Outstanding Achievement in International Agriculture Award.
