2017 IPNI Science Award: Protecting Soil & Environmental Quality

Deadline: 30 September 2017

The International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI) is inviting applicants for its IPNI Science award with a motive to recognize and promote distinguished contributions by scientists involved with global ecological intensification as related to crop production.

Ecological intensification is defined as development of high-yield crop production systems that protect soil and environmental quality and conserve natural resources. Characteristics of ecological intensification include yields achieving near potential top levels, high efficiency of nutrient use, and appropriate management of soil nutrient stocks and organic matter.

The Award is to be presented each year to one agronomic scientist.

Award Information

The recipient receives a plaque and a monetary award of US$5,000.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Private or public sector agronomists, crop scientists, soil scientists, and food scientists from all countries are eligible for nomination.
  • The Award recognizes outstanding achievements in research, extension, or education which focus on efficient and effective management of plant nutrients and their positive interaction in fully integrated crop production, enhancing yield potential, and/or improving crop quality. Such systems improve net returns, lower unit costs of production, and maintain or improve environmental quality.
  • There must be a minimum of three nominations for the award to be issued.
  • A recipient is not eligible to receive the Award more than once
