Landraces and their places

Great interview with Glen Rice, CEO of Anson Mills and president of the Carolina Gold Rice Foundation on the role of landraces, especially grains.
This interview is found on Common-place, a wonderful and wondrous site on Early American life, especially food. The site is sponsored by the American Antiquarian Society in association with the University of Oklahoma and would be enjoyable to many audiences.

Landraces are pre-industrial domesticated plants and animals that are maintained by agricultural methods, rather than scientific methods.
