The Land Institute...

...is the brainchild of Wes Jackson, a botanical researcher in Kansas. He and his coworkers have worked diligently since around 1970 to develop a mix of perennial grasses and forbs, some perhaps of their own creation, that efficiently convert sunlight into human food, and work together to sustain an adequate annual harvest per acre. (In this they are attempting to imitate what native grasslands do naturally.)
