Finalist: RE-CEREAL

Public Vote
Rank # 11

The XX century has seen a dramatic decrease in the variety of crop species grown in the Alpine region, so that nowadays large portions of farmland are occupied by the same monocoltures, mostly used for animal feed. RE-CEREAL (Re-Vitalizing Minor and Pseudo-Cereals) aims at reintroducing highly nutritious, resilient and input-saving buckwheat, millet and oats in the Alpine regions and at promoting a healthy, sustainable diet based on these crops.
