2012 World Food Prize Laureate

The 2012 World Food Prize Laureate is Daniel Hillel. 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’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 “Nobel Prize of Food.”  And, we’ll listen back to past interviews with the 2009 and 2010 Laureates.
