Underutilized Crops & Planetary Health November 12, 2020 by Leah Wolfe

A few themes we explore in this session:

  • What are some of the crops that we should be considering going forward that improve biodiversity and are resilient in the face of climate change?
  • How can food manufacturers and brands best compare alternative crops for their ingredients and products?
  • Are there nutritional benefits to underutilized crops in addition to environmental benefits?

It just seems bizarre to me that of the 7,000 crops we’ve grown throughout our history, the 30,000 edible plants available to us and currently only four crops account for more than half the calories for 7.8 billion people.
