Another View: A Pioneer's Work in Conquering Hunger
Norman Borlaug's 'green revolution' still yielding benefits to Iowa and the rest of the world
Dr. Judith Rodin, President of The Rockefeller Foundation, pays tribute to Dr. Norman Borlaug by recognizing the long-term effects of his work on conquering global hunger.
Hailed for his contributions to humanity during his lifetime, native Iowan and Nobel Peace Prize winner Norman Borlaug sowed the seeds of a revolution that still yields extraordinary benefits for Iowa farmers.
As the World Food Prize Foundation today bestows the World Food Prize — created by Dr. Borlaug — on Professor Daniel Hillel, it is worth taking a moment to note the long-term effect of Borlaug’s pioneering work, not only on global hunger, but also on Iowa’s economy.
