Celebrating 40 Years – Kernza® Perennial Grain in 40 Milestones

This timeline highlights key milestones in the development of Kernza perennial grain. It was created to spotlight and celebrate the past 40 years of work in the United States. Launching a new perennial grain crop requires agronomic, genetic, environmental, food science, and social research with a network of community-based expertise in farmer adoption, policy, supply chain development, and commercialization. This effort is only possible through the collaboration of dozens of researchers, farmers, business partners, policy advocates, and more.
