The newly released CGIAR Research Program on Wheat (WHEAT) Annual Report 2018 highlights joint achievements that are making an invaluable contribution to global food security, especially for the 2.5 billion people who depend on wheat for their livelihoods.

The report describes work with national and global partners using state of the art technology to measure traits and performance for faster development of high-yielding, heat- and drought-tolerant varieties; rapidly diagnosing diseases in farmers’ fields; supporting gender equality in agricultural innovations, and much more.
