Peter Craufurd

Senior Scientist and Country Representative for Nepal

Peter Craufurd is the leader of CIMMYT’s Cereal Systems Initiative for South Asia (CSISA) and the Country Representative for Nepal.

In his work, Craufurd seeks to improve the adoption and scaling of good agronomy through knowledge-sharing, including decision-support tools and assessment of different approaches while asking: What works where, and how can it be scaled up and institutionalized through or with partners?

At present he and his team are working on tools for variety choice, nutrient management, panting dates and seed rates. He also focuses on spatial and predictive agronomy, innovation in how agronomy data is collected, the analytics to make data spatially predictive, and how data is translated into useful knowledge that can drive decision-making.
