Science Awards


Since 1993, IFA has granted the IFA Norman Borlaug Award to a person whose research or extension work has led to significant advances in crop nutrition.

In 2021, IFA decided to expand its awards in recognition that it is important to look at plant nutrition in a new way - a new paradigm that follows a food system approach and pursues multiple socioeconomic, environmental and health outcomes.
