The top honor of $25,000 was presented to the Grain Science Team from Kansas State University for their proposal to increase production of perennial crops. The team made the case that perennial crops require less soil-intensive practices than annual varieties, and outlined how increasing production of perennials could promote soil health, biodiversity, carbon sequestration, water quality, and agricultural systems that can adapt better to climate change.
