Hillel is a pioneer in water irrigation systems, and his work transformed farming in dry desert areas in the Middle East through a trickle irrigation method. We&rsquo;ll talk with Ambassador Kenneth Quinn, President of the World Food Prize Foundation, to find out more about Hillel and the award that is increasingly called, the &ldquo;Nobel Prize of Food.&rdquo;&nbsp; And, we&rsquo;ll listen back to past interviews with the 2009 and 2010 Laureates.</p> Tue, 12 Jun 2012 15:44:16 +0000 Katherine Perkins 3052 at http://iowapublicradio.org 2012 World Food Prize Laureate
