The 2020 World Food Prize Laureate, Dr. Rattan Lal serves as the Distinguished University Professor of Soil Science and founding Director of the Carbon Management & Sequestration Center at The Ohio State University (OSU). From his humble beginnings as a refugee growing up on a small subsistence farm in India, his determination to learn and succeed in school propelled him to become one of the worldโ€™s foremost soil scientists. His pioneering research on the restoration of soil health in Africa, Asia and Latin America led to revelations that impacted agricultural yields, natural resource conservation and climate change mitigation. The agricultural practices Lal advocated are now at the heart of efforts to improve agriculture systems in the tropics and globally. Dr. Lalโ€™s innovative research demonstrated how healthy soils are a crucial component of sustainable agricultural intensification โ€“ enabling higher crop yields, while requiring less land, agrochemicals, tillage, water and energy. His work has been pivotal
