Henry A. Wallace Annual Lectures: Agricultural Science, Technology, and Public Policy
"To see rich land eaten away be erosion, to stand by as continual cultivation on sloping fields wears away the best soil, is enough to make a good farmer sick at heart. My grandfather, watching this process, used to speak of the voiceless land. In our time we have seen the process reach an acute stage, and we have at last begun to take to heart the meaning of soil exploitation."
- Henry A. Wallace
The Henry A. Wallace lecture series was designed to create a forum for the continuing discussion of agricultural science, technology, and
public policy that revolves around the many concerns of Henry A. Wallace. Through these lectures, we hoped to emphasize the thoughts and ideas of
Henry A. Wallace and make clear their relevance and importance for us today.
