Third Annual Perennial Grain Research Reporting Session in Manitoba, Canada

July 16-17, 2012

The first day consisted of ten research talks from five research institutions, ranging from plant molecular genetics to ecosystem services to pathology to food science. The second day consisted of a field tour of long-term cropping system research trials and perennial grain breeding plots, including intermediate wheatgrass, perennial rye, perennial sunflower and perennial wheat. Make sure to check out the agenda and the presentations from sessions.

Research scientists shared results from ongoing and recently completed projects
and discussed future directions of their work. Thanks to Doug Cattani and his team
and to Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives for making this meeting

The session also included a tour of the facilities. Take a glance at the perennial grain in Manitoba.
