Director of the USDA-ARS National Soil Tilth Lab
Dr. Hatfield's research emphasis is on the interactions among the components of the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum and their linkage to air, water and soil quality. He has broad experience with evaluation of farming practices on water quality, water use efficiency and climate impacts on agriculture.
Don Reicosky has been called "a giant in the carbon fields" for his "ground-breaking work" on tillage-induced carbon dioxide loss, carbon sequestration and soil quality and environmental conservation.
A Harvard-educated engineer, Mitchell is widely recognized as "a farmer of the future" who has combined numerous technologies and innovations to greatly increase the efficiencies of his farm operations
One of the first people to research no-tillage technologies in Brazil and Latin America in 1971, Derpsch is a world leader in conservation tillage, on-farm research and technology development and sustainable productivity systems with permanent soil cover.
Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture
John McPhee is a research pioneer with zero-till and controlled traffic farming for intensive horticultural crops.
