Because soils around the world are becoming less fertile and more desert like, it’s getting harder for farmers, especially those in developing nations, to grow basic life-preserving crops.
Quinoa has been called the miracle grain. Not only is the tiny, circular seed rich in protein, dietary fiber, and B vitamins, but varieties of the crop such as those being developed at BYU can also grow just about anywhere—in salty or dry soils and at high altitudes.
Teams of BYU students and their faculty mentors are enriching the world with nutritious, growable grain. Funds donated by alumni and friends of the university make experiences like these possible for thousands of students each year.
