In February 2020, the University of Vermont Northwest Crops and Soils (NWCS) team joined forces with Northern Grain Growers Association (NGGA) board members Randy George and Jeffrey Hamelman to test bake 100% rye loaves with various falling numbers. The rye came from a harvest date trial at Borderview Research Farm as part of a larger Northeast SARE funded project investigating the agronomics and quality parameters of cereal rye.
