Project Description

Of a total of 250,000 identified plant species, 7,000 have been used in agriculture throughout human history. However, currently, 60% of total worldwide caloric input comes from just three plants: rice, wheat and maize. DIVERSIFOOD is focusing on the bulk of the 7,000 forgotten plant species that fall into the category of Underutilised Crops.
