Introduction to Tropical and Underutilized Crops

  • ECHO Inc 17391 Durrance Road North Fort Myers, FL, 33917 United States (map)

Did you know that of 250,000 identified plant species worldwide that only 30 species provide 95 percent of our global food energy needs? And that only three of these crops – wheat, maize and rice – provide half of the world’s food?

Underutilized crops are those with “underexploited potential for contributing to food security, nutrition, health, income generation and environmental services.” The ECHO Underutilized Crops Workshop will not only introduce participants to various less known crops but will also spotlight opportunities for their production and utilization.
