Lorenz Schaller is the director of KUSA, an organization that works to preserve heirloom cereal grains. He wrote this in response to our question about the history of triticale (a natural hybrid of wheat and rye that breeds true in the home garden.) Besides discussing triticale specifically, this is an excellent introduction to grain genetics, a thoughtful consideration of the ethics involved, and a love song to the beauty of growing grains. Half the proceeds of this paper go to KUSA for their vitally important work.
