Faces of ACES Steve LiMeet Steve Li – Associate Professor

I am Steve Li, a weed scientist with Alabama Extension. I started work with ACES in February 2015. My program specialty areas include peanuts, invasive species, forages, pastures, right-of-ways, forestry, woody ornamentals, and turfgrass. I recently started working alongside farmers to introduce the use of agricultural spray drones.

  • What is the best thing about ACES? One of the best things about Extension is having the opportunity to work with growers to resolve their on-farm issues. I am also excited to contribute to the industry and make a difference in famers’ operations.
  • What is the most challenging part of your job? Working at Extension offers the challenge of finding new ways to improve the livelihood of all Alabamians.
