Documentary features CIMMYT and Alliance scientists contributing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture.

Explainers

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.
