EMERGING CROP IMPROVES NUTRITION, WATER QUALITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT Red and Maroon are areas of drought.
As the availability of fresh water decreases and the world population increases, we can promote production of more sustainable crops that require much less water.
EMERGING CROP IMPROVES NUTRITION, WATER QUALITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT PrOatinaTM (Nude oats) • Contains ~20% protein which eclipses the protein content of both rice and wheat. Increased protein will help alleviate malnutrition and improve growth and development in the world’s poorest populations. • Does not contain gluten making this a safe alternative for gluten sensitive individuals. • Production is sustainable in a drier world. Oats are a dryland crop and require significantly less input (water and pesticides) than rice. Oats yields respond to adequate spring and summer moisture, but they do not require flooding or excess irrigation. Learn more at h3p://www.oceanexchange.org/
