Around 4000 visitors - farmers, farmer advisors, breeders, researchers and students of agricultural schools as well as public at large - came to the field day at Nabočany near Chrudim on each of the two-day event. Minor cereals - spelt, einkorn, emmer, rye and oats - to be viewed at the field plots attracted a big interest amongst the visitors. The interest in minor cereals is growing every year, and most so amongst organic farmers.
The HealthyMinorCereals partners and WP leaders met in Crete at the 4th General Assembly meeting. We were honoured by the presence of Marios Markakis from the European Commission.
