During the annual conference of “Fördergesellschaft Albrecht Daniel THAER(*)” members of the association FriedensBrot e.V. (PeaceBread) visited the oldest Permanent Rye Trial worldwide. These trials have been continuously conducted by Martin-Luther-University in Halle-Wittenberg since 1878 and for almost 150 years now.
The director of the Trial Station with these very special rye fields, Dr. Helmut EISSNER, announced his interest in cooperating with the FriedensBrot (PeaceBread) project.
