Growing Einkorn, Emmer, and Spelt in Wyoming

Wyoming farmers are well suited to produce small grain crops and already grow 250,000 acres of wheat, oats, and barley. Ancient wheats (einkorn, emmer, and spelt) are alternative crops that can be grown with existing equipment and fit well into current crop rotations. These grains are taller than modern varieties with more robust roots and more leaf area. They produce high quality straw and can also be used for forage.
