Ardmore: Science on the Plains

The Noble Art ... Of Science

Flying overhead in the 1940s, Lloyd Noble witnessed how destructive farming practices were wearing away Oklahoma’s economic engine: our agricultural base. Applying hardworking men and women as well as the best machinery and methodology, he became a founding father of soil conservation. Now, more than seven decades later, Noble’s message of land stewardship has reached beyond the Southern Great Plains to encircle the globe. And in Ardmore, Oklahoma, the Noble Research Institute’s unprecedented gathering of international scientists works to solve the world’s greatest agricultural challenges.
