Kansas Farmers Testing Teff

KSCB News - July 29, 2010 12:00 am

Kansas farmers are studying an Ethiopian

cereal grain known as teff as a possible alternative crop for the

state.

The Solomon Valley Resource Conservation and Development Area

and the Kansas Black Farmers Association are hosting a teff field

day Aug. 5 south of Woodston. Speakers will present information

about teff and answer questions. Lunch will include teff products

to sample.

The black farmers group has been researching the idea under a

government grant. Project acres have grown from 50 the first year

to nearly 250 the third year.

They want to expand teff in Kansas from test plots to

market-sized plots of the grain.
