Abstract

Small grain cereals and pseudo cereals are all considered as low input species with a high ecological value for cropping systems. They include neglected wheat species, Buckwheat, Quinoa and Amaranth, which are of interest in many of the cooler, wet regions of Europe because of their potential adaptability and the opportunities that they offer as alternative high quality food and feedstuffs and also for specific purposes.

The theme of the COST 814 workshop 'Small Grain Cereals and pseudo Cereals' held in Copenhagen, Denmark on 22 to 24 February 1996, highlighted recent findings and experiences with regard to regional adaptation, cultivation, breeding approaches and marketing niches. It was proposed to undertake physiological studies on crop development and establishment in cool wet conditions. Research aimed at quantifying the formative elements in crop yield, crop products, product quality and suitability for human and animal consumption will be continued. This publication is the Proceedings of the workshop. .
