I was always curious if we could come up with a perennial grain crop we could use pervasively. Apparently Kernza by Land Institute is that. It's got a long way to go but I'm going to get my hand on some to experiment with right now. #sustainability…
Remember biodiversity : single strain used pervasively is actually not something we should want to have.
True. This can't fully replace traditional wheat either, which is probably one of our biggest monocrops up there with corn and soy. This would be planted along side it thus reducing monoculture not increasing monoculture. Hopefully this is the first of many such crops and it can start being grown at scales which will cause the price per pound to start getting competitive.
Yeah, let's hope.
Of course, if we could also tone down meat production, we'd have a lot more overhead, not to mention get 10x the mileage out of any new yield increases.
Mileage was intended metaphorically, not referring to bio-ethanol fuels... 🙁
