World Food Prize winner among speakers at agronomy, crop and soil science societies meetings
Date:8/19/2012

In June, Israeli-American soil scientist Daniel Hillel was named the 2012 recipient of the World Food Prize, the foremost international honor for individuals who have advanced human development by improving the quality, quantity, or availability of food in the world.

Now, Hillela more than 50-year member of the Soil Science Society of America (SSSA) is slated to speak at the 2012 International Annual Meetings of the American Society of Agronomy (ASA), Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), and SSSA. The meetings will be held in Cincinnati, Ohio on Oct. 21-24, 2012.

Born in the United States but raised in Israel, Hillel was first drawn to the issue of water scarcity in agriculture during his days living in the Negev Desert. His research eventually led to a radically new mode of bringing water to crops in arid regions, known as "micro-irrigation," which dramatically improved crop production and water conservation in many of the world's driest and poorest regions.

In addition to Hillel's talk on Weds., Oct. 24, more than 3,000 research presentations will be given at the meetings, and a number of other noted speakers will be in attendance as well (see below).

Journalists, freelance writers, and public information officers are invited to attend the meetings, and can receive complimentary registration and use of the press room.
