来自北京中国农业大学的科学家成为这一全球最具声誉的农业奖项的第六位40岁以下获得

The World Food Prize announced today that Dr. Zhenling Cui a research scientist at China Agricultural University is the 2017 recipient of its “Norman Borlaug Award for Field Research and Application, Endowed by the Rockefeller Foundation.”

中国北京(2017年9月29日)世界粮食奖今日公布,2017年度的诺曼·博洛格实地研究与应用奖授予来自中国农业大学的科学家崔振岭博士。该奖由洛克菲勒基金会资助。

Dr. Cui is being honored for his research and extension work in improving soil health and increasing crop production through the implementation of innovative on-farm fertilizer management strategies. His innovations, developed in close conjunction with farmers, have led to improved nitrogen efficiency, resulting in higher maize and wheat yields throughout the North China Plain, while simultaneously reducing soil degradation and water pollution, impacting thousands and thousands of farmers in China.

崔博士获得此奖,是由于他在其研究以及农业推广项目中,通过创造性的田间化肥管理实现了土壤改良、粮食增产。他在与农民密切合作中形成的创新方式提高了氮肥利用效率,使得华北平原的小麦和玉米产量得以提高,并同时遏制了土壤退化及水质污染。这一创举影响了中国数以千万计的农民。

A Chinese native, who received his Ph.D. at China Agricultural University, 39-year-old Dr. Cui is a member of the faculty at China Agricultural University where he conducts research and implements an extension program for smallholder farmers, aimed at increasing their maize and wheat productivity while maintaining environmental integrity.

今年39岁的崔博士是土生土长的中国人。他从中国农业大学获得博士学位并在该校任教。任职期间,崔博士致力于以自己所从事的科研及农业推广项目帮助小农户提高玉米和小麦产量,并同时保护环境。

To counter the widespread and environmentally detrimental overuse of fertilizer by farmers, Dr. Cui and his research group developed a first-of-its-kind, nitrogen management system that has significantly reduced nitrogen fertilizer application – by as much as 60 percent for wheat and 40 percent for maize – while simultaneously increasing grain yields by 5 percent. Furthermore, nitrogen releases have been reduced by 73 percent in the wheat growing season, and 43 percent in the maize growing season, significantly diminishing soil degradation and water pollution. 

针对农民对于业已大量普及且有害环境的化肥的过度使用,崔博士及其团队开发了一套崭新的氮肥管理系统。该系统显著地减少了氮肥使用(小麦多达60%,玉米则为40%)并同时使产量增加了5%。在小麦与玉米生长季节,该系统使得氮气排放分别降低了73%与43%,并由此明显减缓了土壤退化与水质污染。

ABOUT THE NORMAN BORLAUG AWARD FOR FIELD RESEARCH AND APPLICATION: An independent jury of experts chaired by Dr. Ronnie Coffman selected Dr. Cui from an impressive group of candidates who were evaluated based on the attributes and accomplishments that reflect those demonstrated by Dr. Norman Borlaug during his work, supported by the Rockefeller Foundation, in developing high-yielding, disease-resistant wheat in Mexico in the 1940s and 50s and subsequently introducing adaptable wheat varieties into India and Pakistan during the 60’s, as both countries faced imminent widespread famine. For these achievements, he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970. More details about the award and previous recipients are available at www.worldfoodprize.org/borlaugfieldaward/.

诺曼·博洛格实地研究及应用奖

以其研究的性质与成就是否与诺曼·博洛格博士所展现出的一致为标准,由罗尼·考夫曼博士为主席的独立专家组在众多有竞争力的人选中,选择了崔博士作为获奖者。在洛克菲勒基金会的支持下,诺曼·博洛格博士于1940于1950年代在墨西哥研发出了高产抗病的小麦品种,随后于1960年代,将多个具有适应性的小麦品种引入备受饥荒困扰的印度与巴基斯坦。基于博洛格博士所作出的杰出贡献,他 荣获1970年诺贝尔和平奖。关于该奖的详情及往届获奖者,参看 www.worldfoodprize.org/borlaugfieldaward/.

ABOUT THE WORLD FOOD PRIZE:  The World Food Prize is the foremost international award recognizing the achievements of individuals who have advanced human development by improving the quality, quantity or availability of food in the world. The Prize was founded in 1986 by Dr. Norman E. Borlaug, recipient of the 1970 Nobel Peace Prize. Since then, the World Food Prize has honored 46 outstanding individuals who have made vital contributions throughout the world. The World Food Prize annually hosts the Borlaug Dialogue international symposium and a variety of youth education programs to help further the discussion on cutting-edge global food security issues and inspire the next generation to end hunger.
