Innovation in maize agri-food systems is critical to overcoming this century’s challenges. In 2019, MAIZE partners released 82 CGIAR-derived high-yield maize varieties with drought-, heat- and disease-resistant traits.
In its seventh year, WHEAT helped farmers grow nutritious, resilient and high-yielding wheat, through cutting-edge research and 50 new CGIAR-derived varieties.
In 2018, MAIZE delivered development outcomes and impacts through varietal release, scale-up, delivery and adoption of climate-resilient and nutritionally enriched maize varieties.
WHEAT’s achievements in 2018 made an invaluable contribution to global food security, especially for the 2.5 billion people who depend on wheat for their livelihoods.
