Nitrogen-efficient wheats can provide more food with fewer greenhouse gas emissions, new study shows
Scientists used a wild grass trait that inhibits soil microbes from producing environmentally-harmful nitrogen compounds. Widespread use of the new technology could lower global use of fertilizers for wheat crops.
New leadership will continue to build on scientific excellence on maize and wheat research.
Bangladesh could largely reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture while increasing efficiency in production
Farmers could save costs and contribute to climate mitigation by adopting easy-to-access farming methods like better nitrogen management, intermittent irrigation, and strip tillage, study shows.
CGIAR centers present methodology for transforming resource-constrained, polluting and vulnerable farming into inclusive, sustainable and resilient food systems that deliver healthy and affordable diets for all within planetary boundaries.
Partnership of two world-class research institutes will harness state-of-the-art technology to find solutions for wheat farmers and consumers.
Over 700,000 people will benefit from the Aguas Firmes project, which will facilitate the adoption of sustainable intensification practices on more than 4,000 hectares, through a partnership with Grupo Modelo and GIZ.
A new meta-study confirms that nitrous oxide emissions can be reduced by boosting nitrogen productivity, crop yield and use of “4Rs.”
New report quantifies the impact of 20 years of CGIAR-led maize improvement for Africa.
Switch to irrigation canals will not fully compensate for the expected loss of groundwater in Indian agriculture, new study concludes.
As partners come together as One CGIAR to enact a bold climate-centered strategy, projects like CIMMYT and IITA’s decades-long work on climate-smart maize can help show the way forward.
CIMMYT researchers and partners are applying genomics, remote sensing and big data analysis to fortify the crop against climate-related stresses.
High-zinc and climate-resilient varieties poised to boost production for farmers and nutrition for consumers.
A special event will make a global call to action: to develop a transformational response of agriculture for peace.
CIMMYT contributes to sequencing genomes of 15 wheat varieties around the world.
Study shows investments and innovative policy decisions are increasing farmer incomes and national wheat productivity, with varieties originating from CIMMYT making a significant contribution.
