Wheat researchers, government extension agents, and policy makers gather in Bangladesh to develop their skills in pathology, breeding, agronomy, integrated disease management and agricultural extension technologies.
The Australian High Commission, ACIAR and BARC delegates recognizes the BWMRI-CIMMYT collaborative wheat blast research platform in BangladeshEnvironmental health and biodiversity
Delegates travelled to South Asia to witness the success of a collaboration which is combatting wheat blast disease in Bangladesh and for other wheat growing nations.
CIMMYT scientists recently joined peers in the international wheat research community to share latest findings, offer updates, and raise compelling questions at the 2021 Borlaug Global Rust Initiative Technical Workshop.
Educator and researcher trains partners from around the world in CIMMYT’s unique wheat improvement course.
CIMMYT scientists use high-powered drones and space satellite imagery to accelerate crop improvement, fight pests and diseases and help farmers make better crop management decisions.
Longtime CIMMYT collaborator Ruth Wanyera nears retirement from an honorable and decorated career in wheat research.
Scientists in the Accelerating Genetic Gains in Maize and Wheat for Improved Livelihoods (AGG) project share history and latest results at annual wheat research gathering.
Tunisia-based Septoria phenotyping platform plays critical role in identifying sources of resistance to the disease.
Researchers discuss how phenotyping can assist breeding and make the case for investing in new methodologies.
Modern phenotyping tools are crucial for crop improvement and breeders can profit much more from them.
The manual covers field site selection, effects of weather, crop management and other factors to standardize the required intensity, timing and uniformity of imposed drought stress during field trials.
