Siehl Prize for Excellence in Agriculture

On May 23, 2013, Ray Norling and Ted Huisinga were awarded the Siehl Prize for Excellence in Agriculture (Production Agriculture). Often referred to as the Nobel Prize for Minnesota agriculture, the Siehl Prize is awarded annually in three categories – Production, Agribusiness and Knowledge. The prize is funded by an endowment from Eldon Siehl to the University of Minnesota College of Food and Natural Sciences (CFANS). Mr. Siehl believed that it is vital to honor the three legs of agriculture in a prestigious way since it plays such an important role in our state, our country, and indeed our world.
