Kernza's Perennial Potential

Kernza® has been in development for decades and still has some progress left to be made in yield, but it shows real promise as a perennial grain. To be clear, this is humanity's first perennial grain. With deep roots it stores carbon away while holding the soil back from erosion. A market for the grain is in its early stage, so hopefully in the next couple of decades it will become an attractive alternative to annual grain crops.
