  • I really don’t like the way a bunch of very different cereals are lumped together as “millets,” but anyway.
  • Mongabay optimistic about climate-smart agriculture after Global Landscape Forum.
  • I guess it must be the resilience.
  • Rebuilding Nepali seed systems after the earthquake. See what I mean?
