ALLFED is a nonprofit focused on feeding everyone in the case of a global catastrophe.

ALLFED plants[edit | edit source]

There are three categories of ALLFED plants:

  1. Those that are commonly cultivated now so we can get leaf protein concentrate from them right after a catastrophe. The top 30 are shown below, which go down to the bottom crops being 0.3% of the total global resource: wheat, rice, maize, alfalfa, sugarcane, mixedgrass, soybean, barley, forNES, maizefor, cotton, sorghum, grassNES, rapeseed, oilpalm, onion, groundnut (peanut), millet, sunflower, banana, rye, clover, oats, legumeNES, bean, cassava, potato, sugarbeet, grape, coconut (copra meal—left over from processing of coconuts to oil), and plantains.
  2. Cool tolerant crops that can be grown in the tropics in nuclear winter, and are also low cost per calorie: potato, sugarbeet, barley, wheat, and canola.
  3. Crops that would grow in greenhouses in nuclear winter tropics, which will probably be the non-cool tolerant crops for the rich (though rice and maize might not be too expensive).
