The IPNI Science Award purpose is to recognize and promote distinguished contributions by scientists involved with global ecological intensification as related to crop production.
Ecological intensification is defined as development of high-yield crop production systems that protect soil and environmental quality and conserve natural resources.
Characteristics of ecological intensification include yields achieving near potential top levels, high efficiency of nutrient use, and appropriate management of soil nutrient stocks and organic matter.
The recipient receives a plaque and a monetary award of US$5,000.00 (five thousand dollars).
