Harvest Choice meets

June 8, 2007

Harvest Choice, a partnership between the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), the University of Minnesota, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, held a workshop this week at CIMMYT El Batán. The goal of the meeting was to test and refine a method for assessing the impact on cropping system productivity of key pests within sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, especially with respect to the rural poor.


Participants from CIMMYT included Dave Hodson, John Dixon, Julie Nicol (via a link to Turkey), Etienne Duveiller, and Jonathan Crouch.
