Qualifications and Publication Information

The incumbent has 47 years of research and Extension experience in state and federal organizations in the genetic improvement of sugarcane, selection of improved sugarcane cultivars, and cane and juice quality and served as Research Leader for the USDA-ARS, Sugarcane Research Unit, Southern Regional Research Center, Houma, LA for 11 years prior to his accepting a position as Sugarcane Specialist with the Louisiana State University Agricultural Center (LSUAC), Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service in 2000.  In March 2007, the incumbent accepted the position as Interim Director, Audubon Sugar Institute, LSUAC, Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station.  In 2008, he was appointed Professor and Head, Audubon Sugar Institute and Interim Sugarcane Specialist, LSUAC, St. Gabriel, LA.  In 2009, he was named Professor and Head, Audubon Sugar Institute, a position he holds today.  The incumbent is an international authority on sugarcane breeding and sugarcane quality and is recognized for his work on plant growth regulators as chemical ripeners.  The incumbent has authored or coauthored over 250 publications and 150 published abstracts, and made over 100 presentations before professional societies.  Dr. Legendre is recognized as one of the leading sugarcane experts in the world in the areas of breeding and selection and cane and juice quality.  He is also sought out widely for helping to solve milling and processing problems that are related to varieties and harvest systems.  His advice and counsel is often sought out internationally, nationally, and locally for technical advisory activities and committee assignments within his disciplines.  He has accepted invitations to visit and consult with colleagues in more than 20 foreign countries on variety improvements, germplasm enhancement, cane and juice quality, cane deterioration, freeze management and processing.
