Michael Fields Agricultural Institute

Location: East Troy, WI

Michael Fields Agricultural Institute (MFAI) carries out agronomic research and stewards land in the southeastern Wisconsin complex of living lands.

In collaboration with The Land Institute, MFAI is growing and studying the perennial grain Kernza©. Perennial grain systems have the potential to prevent and reverse the most detrimental effects of the current annual, monocultural approach that dominates grain production today. A naturally regenerating, Kernza builds soil, retains soil nutrients, increases carbon capture in roots, enhances and protects biodiversity, and protects and improves water quality. In addition to the Kernza trials, MFAI’s research and stewardship includes organic corn breeding, industrial hemp, and warm season species cover cropping under monoculture, biculture, and polyculture conditions. MFAI’s applied agronomic research is helping to address today’s pressing challenges around soil health and retention, water quality, climate resilience, and food security.
