Abstract: The idea that cereals such as bread wheat, rice and sorghum can be transformed from high-input annuals to more resilient perennial plants has obvious appeal. Here, in theory, would be a crop that could be harvested over several seasons, while also providing biomass for forage and environmental services, such as protection from wind erosion and dryland salinity.
