The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) is responding to the threat of COVID-19 and taking measures to ensure all our staff worldwide stays safe and healthy. We continue to perform field and desk research, to the extent allowed by this new situation, and we continue to share our progress and findings.
At times like this, we step back and focus on our vision: a world with healthier and more prosperous people — free from the threat of global food crises — and with more resilient agri-food systems.
We would not be able to pursue this vision without your support. We look forward to continuing our collaboration.
