Abstract/Contents:Reviews results on research conducted to select the most promising species from 100 species tested based on a set of 10 criterion. States that, "based on these selection criteria, the intermediate wheatgrass (Thinopyron intermedium) complex of species appears to have the best potential for development into a perennial grain crop...The grain can be ground into flour for use in flavorful baked products such as muffins and breads or cooked as a whole grain, like rice." Provides background information on the purpose of the study, and announces future research plans on developing the seed. Mentions that "in addition to varietal development, cultural techniques are being tested to develop successful, low input methods of producing perennial grains on a commercial scale."
