Cultivating the Future: Growing the Northwest Quinoa Crop – Innovators Luncheon

April 24, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm



Join us for a lively discussion of all things quinoa: its use as a food, growing it locally and developing a new source of income for farmers of the Pacific Northwest, and social justice for the farmers in quinoa’s native lands in the Andes.

Dr. Kevin Murphy, leader of Washington State University’s Organic Breeding Program, will guide us through the story of quinoa in the Pacific Northwest.

1. What is in quinoa?
2. What is quinoa’s economic potential in the Pacific Northwest?
3. What are the global impacts of establishing a regional quinoa industry?
4. What are the challenges to growing quinoa in the Pacific Northwest, and what is WSU doing to help?

The WSU Office of Research, along with the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences, invite you to learn more about this important innovative research and the big ideas at work at WSU.
