On Oct. 15, CFAES honored its own Rattan Lal, 2020 World Food Prize Laureate, with a video retrospective of his life and career, which you can watch here.

The video, presented as a side event to the World Food Prize award ceremony that day, also included the announcement that Lal’s name is being added to the center he founded at CFAES—what will now be called the Rattan Lal Carbon Management and Sequestration Center.

Lal is Distinguished University Professor of Soil Science in the School of Environment and Natural Resources. Most recently, he has also received the 2019 Japan Prize, 2018 Glinka World Soil Prize, and 2018 World Agriculture Prize.
