Field100: A little piece of a better world
Making nutrition inclusive and enjoyable for everyone while promoting minor crops – that's what Dr. Schär has been striving for, for the last 100 years. To celebrate our 100th anniversary, we've launched Field100. Our mission: to create one of the most biodiverse fields ever cultivated, with 100 different crops – all in one field – thanks to 100 years of Dr. Schär expertise.
This means that, in close cooperation with seed banks such as CropTrust and Genebank Tyrol, we have carefully selected 100 diverse plant varieties that can adapt to the specific conditions of the field in the South Tyrolean Alps: Thus, local oats and buckwheat grow together in harmony with Nepalese amaranth or quinoa from the Andes – right “on our doorstep”.
Field100 is our commitment to champion biodiversity – today and in the next 100 years.
