CFAES last week honored its own Rattan Lal, 2020 World Food Prize Laureate, with a video retrospective of his life and career, which you can watch above. Lal is Distinguished University Professor of Soil Science in the School of Environment and Natural Resources.
The video includes the announcement that Lal’s name is being added to the center that he founded—what will now be called the Rattan Lal Carbon Management and Sequestration Center.
You can watch the World Food Prize award ceremony itself, which the World Food Prize Foundation hosted on Oct. 15, here.

You can now order Ohio State Maple Syrup online and have it delivered to your home. The syrup, while from maples, is totally Buckeye:
- It comes from a sugar bush envisioned, started, and run by students in CFAES’ School of Environment and Natural Resources.
- The nearly 20-acre sugar bush is located at the Ohio State Mansfield campus, about 70 miles north of Columbus. It’s part of the campus’s EcoLab.
- The sales help benefit Ohio State students. The proceeds fund scholarships for students at the EcoLab.
