Secale cereale or Rye is a plant native to Eastern and Central Turkey. Today it is found widespread in Northern Europe and Asia as a cereal or as a forage crop. It is known for its ability to adapt because it can grow in poor acid soils, cold temperatures, and often very high altitudes. It is best known for its flour, used for making bread with a high nutritional value.[1]
