On 24 June 2020 NPR (National Public Radio) reported: Rattan Lal just won a quarter of a million dollars for his scientific research on soil. And in fact, soil and money have something in common, says Lal, the newly named 2020 World Food Prize Laureate. Think of the ground as similar a bank account. If you want to improve your bank account balance, you have to deposit more money than you withdraw. The same goes for soil. You have to make deposits to keep it healthy. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of science and environment, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

Over the course of his 50-year career, Lal, a professor of soil science and the director of the Carbon Management and Sequestration Center at Ohio State University, has pioneered farming techniques that prevent soil from losing these vital nutrients and even put nutrients back into soil. Lal's approach, which he calls 'soil-centric,' not only boosts organic matter content but can also help prevent deforestation, mitigate climate change and increase biodiversity.
