Field Notes, powered by KPMG, is a weekly news update on news nationally and globally from the agri-food sector.
A report by the Our Land and Water National Science Challenge research programme Next Generation Systems has identified six crops that could present real future food opportunities for New Zealand. The crops are soy, hemp, chickpeas, buckwheat, oats and quinoa. The crops have potential as both raw ingredients and as products, whilst allowing farmers to create diversity on their land. The researchers gathered information on a wide range of crops and considered consumer and manufacturer demand for foods and ingredients that are sustainably grown in NZ.
