  • “It is like archaeology to me. When you save an ancient seed it is like saving a sculpture. It represents the culture, tradition and history. Different types have different traits and intense flavours, like tomatoes years ago for example.”
  • Vietnamese specialty rices direct from the genebank. Totally unrelated to this NY Times video-essay on Hmong rice farming.
  • Time for tea.
  • Making coffee good again. Jeremy explores fair trade and Fair Trade. Do tea now, please, Cherfas.
  • ‘Shrooms got magic horizontally, man.
  • Why do circus peanuts taste of bananas?
  • Bringing back the mouse bean. Which may or may not taste of bananas.
  • Cool maize book to round off the Native American crops trifecta.
  • Oh no, here’s another one. Pinning down maize domestication.
  • Funky ICARDA agroclimatological app.
  • REALLY old Italian wine. And something to go with it.
  • ICRISAT has a genebank in Zimbabwe too.
  • Plant Treaty transfers hit a milestone.
  • Policy brief on policy briefs. Homework: do a killer policy brief on any of the above.
