Training events

Researchers attending CIMMYT courses play a critical role in meeting their countries’ national food security and resource conservation goals. They work on behalf of the world’s poorest and most marginal farmers.

By creating quality communities of agricultural knowledge – in critical regions – CIMMYT empowers researchers to help these farmers and, in so doing, to help their countries towards a more food-secure, sustainable future. In contrast to formal academic training in plant breeding and agronomy, which is normally broad and theoretical, CIMMYT training activities are hands-on and highly specialized.

CIMMYT works worldwide. Trainees from Asia, Africa, and Latin America who attend CIMMYT courses benefit from the mass of information and data assembled and handled in a global research program. Alumni of CIMMYT courses often become a significant force for agricultural change in their countries.
