CGIAR research highlighted among climate innovations to meet net zero emissions
Documentary features CIMMYT and Alliance scientists contributing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture.
Plant breeding innovations
Over millennia, natural selection and humans have systematically adapted the plant species that provide food and other vital products, changing their physical and genetic makeup for enhanced productivity, nutrition and resilience. Plant breeders apply science to continue improving crop varieties, making them more productive and better adapted to climate extremes, insects, drought and diseases.
Breeders take quantum leap
Molecular breeding experts learn about state-of-the-art data analysis and visualization tools at Wheat Initiative workshops.
Landmark study generates genomic atlas for global wheat improvement
CIMMYT contributes to sequencing genomes of 15 wheat varieties around the world.
Faster results at a lower cost
Innovative tools and technologies help CIMMYT maize breeders in Africa accelerate the delivery of high-quality seed.
Collaborating to accelerate genetic gains in maize and wheat
Tremendous impact is arising from the longstanding cooperation between CIMMYT’s maize and wheat programs and national programs in countries where CIMMYT works.
“Better, faster, equitable, sustainable” – wheat research community partners join to kick off new breeding project
Collaboration, partnership and mutual learning with national partners key focus of new project to accelerate breeding and delivery of improved wheat varieties.
