Lloyd Noble established the Noble Research Institute in 1945 as a way to safeguard the soil and foster land stewardship. This year, the Noble Research Institute and The Farm Foundation launched the Soil Renaissance to reawaken the nation's focus on soil and soil health.
Without soil, there are no plants and no livestock that consume plants. There are no people who consume plants and livestock. There is no society. Soil is the foundation. It is life, and we're running out of it.
