Cagnano Amiterno emmer wheat shows genetic and morphological peculiarities shared with central Italy's Triticum dicoccum cultivar group. With the Gran Sasso mountain plateaus as its native environment, the cultivation of this variety is still practiced in marginal and depleted land within the territory of the aforementioned national park

Fairly large in its spike dimensions, Cagnano Amiterno shares with other varieties of emmer wheat a great suitability in the crop rotation systems typical of organic agriculture

This variety features nutritional values very rich in vitamins A, B, C and E, mineral salts, calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus. Cagnano Amiterno's flour is ideally used in the making of aromatic and high-fibre breads
