Organic Grain Breeding Program Endowed At WSU

January 31, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Organic snack food company Clif Bar has joined with King Arthur Flour to fund a $1.5 million endowment to support organic grain breeding at Washington State University (Pullman, Wash.) that would develop crop varieties adapted to organic farming. An endowed chair totaling $850,000 is being awarded to Stephen Jones (left), director of the WSU Bread Lab. Working with area farmers, the Bread Lab is developing varieties of wheat and barley that provide hardy, nutritionally-dense rotation crops. The new varieties not only enrich the soil, but also produce grains favored by local millers and maltsters who sell to regional bakers and brewers, according to Clif Bar.  [Image Credit: © WSU]
