The US Department of Agriculture Rattan Lal, a diplomat of the Punjabi Agricultural University in Ludhyana, received the prestigious world food price, considered to be the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for Agriculture, recognising its contribution to increasing the world food supply by helping small farmers to improve the quality of their produce.

Dr Lal, 75 years old, has spent over five decades and four continents in his career promoting innovative conservation practices for soils that benefit more than 500 million small operators, Improving food and nutritional safety for more than two billion people and saving hundreds of millions of hectares of natural tropical ecosystems, declared the Global Food Prize foundation in a joint children’s communiqué.

Dr Rattan Lal, a native of Pendjab and an American citizen, will receive the Global Food Prize 2020 to have developed and implemented a sol-based approach to increasing food production that restores and conserves natural resources and anticipates climate change, has declared the foundation based in Iowa.

La science du sol a reçu ce prix. I’m very pleased, a-t-il declared on PTI in an interview after the annonce.

The Dr. Lal has noted that the organic tenor of his sol dans la couche superficielle should be between 2 and 3 %. Mais le sol du Punjab, de l’Haryan, du Rajasthan, de Delhi, du centre de l’Inde et des régions du sud peut en contenir 0,5 % ou peut-être 0,2 %.

This prize is particularly important because the first prestigious award of this prize in 1987 was the agronomist if Dr. MS Swaminathan, the leader of the French Revolution in Inde, declared Dr. Lal.

ASSAINISSEMENT AND MANAGEMENT OF THE HEALTH CARE OF SOLS

In a country like the Inde, a-t-il this, sol is subject to climate change due to severe climate change and other factors.

This price aimed at peds therefore underlines the importance of the restoration and management of soils. We need to pay more attention to Dharti Mata (la Terre Mère). Our billions and our puranas have also shown that we must treat Dharti Mata with respect. This price is therefore very important to me, a Dr. Lal declared.

Every year, we have seen the quality of the applications for the prize, but it is the remarkable work of Dr Lal on the management and conservation of the most precious natural resource in agriculture – the sole – which distils it, as stated by Gebisa Edjeta, President of the Committee for the Selection of the World Food and Nutrition Prize 2009.

Dr Lal is an honorary professor at the Collège des sciences alimentaires, agricoles et environnementales (CFAES) of the University of the State of Ohio.

THE ASSOCIATION DES ANCIENS ÉLÈVES DE PAU FÉLICITE LE DR. LAL

The association des anciens étudiens de l’université agricole du Pendjabi félicité le Dr Rattan Lal on behalf of vice-chancelier B.S. Dhillon, la faculté, le personnel et les étudiants de l’université for this prestigious compensation. The Association is proud to have delivered laurels to its mother tongue and wishes to have been Dr. Lal for many years of service to humanity, according to a press communiqué from the professor and doyen Surinder S. Kukal.

Over the last five decades, Dr Lal has reduced the problem by implementing good agricultural practices in the world, which not only restore degraded soils, but also reduce climate change, and has declared the university in a communiqué.

This is a great honour and a privilege for me to serve many smallholder farmers throughout the world, because I was one of them. Vous êtes les gardiens de la Terre. These are the ones that should solve the world’s most difficult food problems, as Dr Lal, the Director of the Centre for Sequestration and Management of the Ohio Carboniferous Carbone, said.

It has stated that it will pay a price of USD 250 000 (1.9 million rupees) in Spain for future research and education in the field of soldier science.

The Dr Lal noted that the efficiency of the Inde is environmental and even less so than that of the United States, and stated that it does not appear to have any justification for this.

ARRÊTER DE BRÛLER LES RÉSIDUS DE RÉCOLTE AU PUNJAB, HARJANA

The Dr. Lal has noted that the organic tenor of his sol dans la couche superficielle should be between 2 and 3 %. Mais le sol du Punjab, de l’Haryan, du Rajasthan, de Delhi, du centre de l’Inde et des régions du sud peut en contenir 0,5 % ou peut-être 0,2 %.

You’re very fatigued, retarded. As a result, not only productivity and returns are low, but also the efficiency of the machinery, such as engraving and irrigation. When the plants are cultivated on malsains, the quality of the food and nutrients is also poor.

When the sound of the sol is détériore, the sound of the gens is détériore as well. I think it’s important that the Inde and the other developing countries focus on restoring the health of the soles, the Dr. Lal said.

The Pédologue called for the immediate combustion of crop residues in States such as Pendjab, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana.

Tout enlever au sol n’est pas bon pour le sol. There is a law on repatriation. Anything you take on sol, you have to rendre, a-t-il this.

NEED A POLICY FOR THE PROTECTION OF SOLES

Another problem for Dr. Lala is the production of briques, which can quickly become sol.

The Inde should have a policy to protect soils, as it has been stated, adding that some terrestrial farms cannot be affected by the production of briques.

It has also called for compensation to be paid to farmers who contribute to the protection of soils without destroying crops by using more compost and engraving.

The policy of protection of soles is important. At the national level, we must produce an evaluation report on soils every five years. How this changes and we must protect agricultural land from other uses such as urbanisation and the production of briques, as well as the fact that engravings are not a good substitute for the production of crops.

The Dr Lal noted that the efficiency of the Inde is environmental and even less so than that of the United States, and stated that it does not appear to have any justification for this. We must have a collection as good as that of any other country. The health of our soles is mauvaise. We have agreed to pay a lot of attention to varieties. Diversity is important. (Mais) There’s nothing to be done when the sol is mauvais. That’s the part we have to admit.

I think that the Prime Minister (Narendra) Maudie can do a lot to improve the health of soils and circulation (de département). Maudie can also tell us about our religious life. Cela fait partie de our culture, a-t-il ajouté.
