Spelt (Triticum spelta L.), also known as dinkel wheat or hulled wheat was a very important cereal in the Bronze Age and the Middle Ages in Europe. This ancient wheat has attracted attention in the past two decades because of the possibility of organic farming as it requires less fertilizers and pesticides compared to other forms of wheat. Due to the increasing awareness of consumers and their attention to the variety and quality of food spelt is becoming more and more important, so an increasing number of producers returns to the cultivation of spelt. In 2014, spelt was grown on 75 family farms, while in 2015 that number more than doubled and the cultivation of spelt was recorded on 165 family farms. After processing grains for food, chaffs, glumes and stems remain as a by-product. Spelt biomass is a renewable source of energy. The detailed description of the research and the energy potential of spelt biomass on family farms are given in the paper.
