Optimizing Human Health and Nutrition: From Soil to Society
Welcome to the website for the Soil to Society (S₂S) project!
This project is funded through the USDA's Agriculture and Food Research Initiative's (AFRI) Sustainable Agriculture Systems (SAS) program. This 5-year, $10 million project employs researchers from Washington State University, Johns Hopkins University, the USDA, Viva Farms, and Kansas State University in the crop and soil sciences, food science, and health and medicine disciplines to create more nutritious, affordable, and accessible whole grain-based foods. Our target crops include wheat, barley, buckwheat, quinoa, peas, and lentils.
