Can the Climate-Friendly Grain Kernza® Finally Hit the Big Time?

Many collaborators along the supply chain work together to move Kernza® perennial grain forward. Most recently, a coalition of researchers, farmers, educators, industry leaders, policy experts, and climate scientists was awarded a grant through USDA NIFA’s Agriculture and Food Research Initiative’s Sustainable Agricultural Systems program to scale the research, production, awareness and commercialization of Kernza®.

Today’s article in Civil Eats details the work of this new team and discusses Kernza®’s potential to mitigate effects of climate change. To learn more about the various projects within the Kernza® CAP initiative, read the article on the Civil Eats website.
