Our new article on perennial staple crops

PAI is happy to announce that our newest article, “Perennial staple crops: Yields, distribution, and nutrition in the global food system” was published today in Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems. Building on the information presented in PAI Director Eric Toensmeier’s book The Carbon Farming Solution, this peer-reviewed article by lead author Maayan Kreitzman provides, for the first time ever, peer-reviewed analysis of the yields, nutrition, carbon sequestration, and adoption potential of this important class of perennial crops.
