2014 Value-Added Grains Project Variety Trials at Cornell.
July 1st, 2014
Researchers from the Value Added Grains for Local and Regional Food Systems gave a twilight tour of Cornell’s value-added grain trials at Homer C. Thompson Research Farm in Freeville, N.Y.

The trials, now in their third year, consist of small plots of modern and heritage wheat, spelt and the ancient grains emmer and einkorn. The grains were planted in both winter and spring to assess seasonal versatility, and presenters shared their findings on yield, temperature tolerance and disease susceptibility.
David Benscher, Gary Bergstrom, Lisa Kucek of Cornell and Elizabeth Dyck of OGRIN led the discussion in the field.
