Summary of the KBS Perennial Wheat and Grains Field Day!

KBS Perennial Wheat and Grains Field Day
Wednesday, June 27, 2012  

We had a great turnout at the Perennial Wheat and Grains Field Day! Take a look at our Perennial Wheat and Grain Field Day Agenda to see what we did throughout the day.

Our hardworking grad students Sienna Tinsley, Christine Sprunger and Nikhil Jaikumar were able to present their preliminary data and results they have collected regarding perennial grains to the group. Throughout the field day, farmers were encouraged to interact with the grad students to learn more and ask questions regarding the growing promise of perennial grains. With this, the farmers were able to evaluate the potential crops for their needs.  Though we haven’t reached our goals with perennial grains yet, we were able to leran more about about the research that’s being done and discuss potential outcomes for such crops.
