ISA Medal

The Society has instituted since 1987 ISA Medals and Fellows amongst the outstanding active ordinary and life members in recognition of their professional leadership, outstanding contributions and service to the Indian Society of Agronomy. Total number of Fellows at any time should not exceed 10 percent of the life membership subject to maximum of 200 and the number of Fellows selected each year does not normally exceed six. The number of ISA Medalists each year does not exceed two.

The Executive Council of ISA appoints a search committee comprising 5-6 members amongst the Gold Medalists, Fellows of ISA and Honorary Members. The selection of Gold Medalists and Fellows by the search committee is based on the personal knowledge of the members or the committee may invite the biodata of all those being considered for these awards. The committee submits the recommendations to the Executive Council for final approval.

The Executive Council may also elect individuals (non-members) as Fellows who in its opinion have rendered conspicuous service to the cause of Agronomy, provided that not more than one person is selected in any one year.
