A.E. Nightingale, PhD
Professor Emeritus, Horticulture
Texas A&M University
Dr. A.E. Nightingale was one of the first professional horticulturists to recognize the ability of Spray-N-Grow to increase yields while simultaneously improves produce quality. He began conducting field trials with Spray-N-Grow in 1985. His first trial on Yolo Wonder bell peppers fascinated him and encouraged him to do more work with Spray-N-Grow.
Dr. Nightingale conducted dozens of field trials with Spray-N-Grow and assisted other researchers as well. He concluded, “Considering the cost per acre and the over-all benefits, it is difficult to find a reason not to use Spray-N-Grow.”
After serving the U.S. Navy in WWll, Dr. Nightingale received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Rutgers University. He was a county extension agent working in commercial agriculture, in New Jersey, where he also owned and operated a farm.
He graduated with a PhD from Texas A&M University in 1965. He was a professor at Texas A&M for many years, conducting research and teaching horticulture students. He was honored as Professor Emeritus Horticulture and retired in 1989.
