New CIMMYT research sheds light on farmer maize preferences in Ethiopia and western Kenya.
Zinc and provitamin A biofortified maize genotypes have potential to reduce hidden hunger in Nepal.
Scientists research whether nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) and tomato production in Nepal can be improved with better utilization of nitrogen fertilizer.
Scientists determine nitrogen use could be reduced without impacting rice yields for sustainability of rice production in Northwestern Indo-Gangetic Plains.
A study on the physical disturbance of soil shows that it drives changes in soil properties and affects soil microbial activity.
Scientists recommend alternative methods for preventing soil degradation that can contribute towards attaining food security.
Wheat farmers in Bangladesh have participated in the design and management of research trials to determine the best wheat seed storage options for their conditions.
The goals for breeding new crops have been changed by the rising demands for climate-ready crops, originating from the urgent need to adapt to climate change.
Maize varieties with connections to CGIAR germplasm account for 34% of the total maize area in 2015 in 18 sub-Saharan African countries, discover researchers.
Study explores how to reduce GHG emissions while supporting food security through nitrogen managementClimate adaptation and mitigation
Responses of yields and N₂O emissions to N inputs could be used to design appropriate N management strategies for addressing the dual challenge of food insecurity and climate crisis.
After first being cultivated more than 9,000 years ago, research shows that maize not only plays an essential role in global agrifood systems today but has a strongly increasing demand.
A unique study by CIMMYT scientists in Türkiye in collaboration with scientists from the Bolu Abant Izzet Baysal University, Türkiye demonstrate the prevalence of fungi species in wheat production areas in Kazakhstan, which could be affecting wheat yield and quality.
Reduced wheat exports from Russia and Ukraine are causing an increase in price rises in countries where food security is already a concern.
Genetic gain for yield in CIMMYT varieties distributed in Afghanistan shows an increase over a 14-year period.
