    "The campus of Alabama ANN (A & M?) University may neem an unlikely place for a grain-field - but this is no oxdinary grain. It's a cross between wheat and rye.....................



    ............. Treaocaeli(?) is potentiall valuable as a crop for underdeveloped countries............................



    ........... It is extremely high in protein............................



    ........... at present the yield in bushels per acre is less than some varieties of puro wheat, but............................. more prctein can be produced onfewer acres..........



    Tredocaeli has been called a miracle grain, but it is no overnight miracle - it may take several more years to develop a strain that will produce bot high yield and high protein. Food scientists hope they have enough lee-tins ??? stay ahead in the race with world ???ino, which keeps gaining on them all the time. (K-- Jones, MEC News, huntsville Alabama)
