Awards Ceremony


Recognizing Extraordinary Contributions to Sustainable Agriculture Research

As a USDA Center of Excellence, our national fellows acknowledge those who are also trailblazers in the agri-environment world.  In 2015, we established the Innovation Award for organizations that make extraordinary contributions to sustainable agriculture practices. 


Presented annually, the Innovation Award highlights mid-career scientists at institutions working in the scientific fields applicable to conservation agriculture, including plant and animal sciences, nutrition and food science, soil science, entomology, and agricultural economics.
