Welcome to Plant Sciences

Dr. Gustavo Sbatella

Gustavo Sbatella

On August 2, 2017, we lost a cherished faculty member Gustavo Sbatella.   Gustavo was stationed at the Powell Research and Extension Center where he conducted a research and extension program in weed science associated with irrigated crops.  Gustavo had a savvy for conducting research in weed science and we as his colleagues became better scientists because of him.  Gustavo provided crop producers in northwest Wyoming and beyond with answers to their weed control issues and other production challenges and students loved to work for him and take his courses.  He had a tell‑it‑like-is approach to communication that everyone around him appreciated; he did not use flowery run‑around language when describing crop management solutions.  Gustavo was the most personable colleague any of us could have ever worked with.  We all wanted to be like Gustavo.  His energy was second to none.  Many tried to keep up with him but he would eventually always surpass them with his steadfast work ethic.   We admired his ability to create simple fixes.  Whether in a professional situation or in a more relaxed social situation, Gustavo was the life of the room; his laugh was infectious.  His family considered him to be their rock.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family as they grieve through this difficult time.  His fellow scientists, his coworkers, his students, and the crop producers that benefitted from his commitment to their farms are thankful for the time spent with Gustavo.  We will miss our friend.
