As the COVID-19 pandemic rages on, the bioeconomy is facing challenges.
On Friday, Feb. 12, from 9 a.m. to noon, CFAES’ Advanced BioSystems Workshop will look at those challenges and will brainstorm ways for technology, research, and the government to address them.
“Restoring soil health,” CFAES soil scientist Rattan Lal says, “is essential to restoring human health.”
As 2020 World Food Prize laureate, he knows that solving our biggest challenges starts beneath our feet.
Join us on Friday for a celebration of World Soil Day.
