Researchers found that prediction performance was highest using a multi-trait model.
Every year, thousands of wheat lines are analyzed in detail in the CIMMYT Wheat Quality laboratory to determine the nutritional, processing and end-use quality of the grain.
Publication reviews the history of CGIAR maize research from 1970 to 2020.
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.
CIMMYT is offering a new set of improved maize hybrids to partners, to scale up production for farmers in these areas.
New CIMMYT Brochure highlights value of maize and wheat science to battle rising undernourishment.
Understanding the relationship between climate change and plant health is key to conserving biodiversity and boosting food production today and for future generations.
For nearly a decade, the CGIAR Research Program on Maize has contributed to resilient, equitable and socially inclusive maize agri-food systems. 2020 proved this work to be more necessary than ever.
WHEAT supported the release of 63 CGIAR-derived high-yielding and climate-resilient wheat varieties in 2020, boosting farmer resilience and income throughout the wheat-growing world.
New leadership will continue to build on scientific excellence on maize and wheat research.
CIMMYT and its partners worldwide continue to work on this complex challenge, so millions of smallholder farmers can protect their crops and feed their families.
Working towards resilience, renewal and transition in our agri-food systems.
Researchers, extension services, partners and policymakers can better support feminization of agriculture processes in the Indo-Gangetic Plains through improved research and recommendations.
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.
CIMMYT’s decision to focus on APR genes versus race-specific genes (R-genes) protects the livelihoods of millions of smallholder wheat farmers throughout Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
