Uncover Hazelnuts’ Potential for Food, Feed & Bioenergy
As a result of the Consortium’s work, hazelnut production in the U.S. will expand, resulting in the increased use, productivity and popularity of these flavorful nuts.
Hazelnuts are already among the most popular nuts in the world. With a wide expansion of the hazelnuts-growing regions in the United States, as a result of the Consortium’s work, the popularity of these flavorful nuts will continue to rise. In addition to being a healthy food option, there is serious potential for using hazelnuts for oil and animal feed production. In addition to standard farmland, the possibility of producing hazelnuts on marginal soils and sloping, rocky land with little inputs holds great promise for increasing the world’s sustainable food, feed, and energy supply. Organic hazelnuts also show great potential.
