The World Food Prize was established by Dr. Norman Borlaug and is the equivalent of the Nobel Prize in agriculture. This year’s winner is Dr. Cynthia Rosenzweig, whose extensive work in crop modeling, cross-disciplinary collaboration, and activism is helping to prepare the world to combat the effects of climate change. In this episode, Cynthia discusses her work as a crop modeler, her work with farmers, politicians, and other stakeholders, and how we can all work together for lasting change.

Tune in to learn:

  • Why NASA is interested in crop modeling on Earth
  • How a foray into Italy got Cynthia hooked on agriculture
  • How Ag MIP is creating a crop modeling symphony
  • How a stakeholder-first approach helps farmers and researchers advance together
