The promise of perennials: Challenges of perennial grain crop development
It’s hard to argue with the advantages of a perennial grain crop. By breaking the repetitive plow-plant-harvest cycle of annuals, perennials reduce soil erosion caused by annual farming, and their deep roots help stabilize the soil. Less input is required since their roots can utilize water and nutrients much deeper than annuals. Yet, there are breeding and management challenges that must be overcome.
