My name is Jacob Jungers and I am an agroecologist. I work to develop and implement new cropping systems that enhance agricultural productivity, mitigate environmental pollution, and support biodiversity. Currently, my research is focused on Kernza®, a new perennial grain crop being developed in partnership with The Land Institute
