Fonio: A case study.

How can we promote the shift from common crops like wheat and rice to crops that have been forgotten by the people who previously consumed them? What roles can scientists and consumers play, and what are the challenges that need to be addressed to guarantee that these crops are reintroduced to everyone's benefit?

Please join our experts at the first Dialogue of the Forgotten Crops Society as they discuss these questions in relation to fonio, an African heritage grain that is considered the continent’s oldest cultivated cereal.
