The international winter wheat improvement program (IWWIP), an alliance between Turkey-CIMMYT-ICARDA, has distributed improved germplasm to different National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) partners through international ...
Breeding disease-resistant wheats for tropical highlands and lowlands
Wheat is grown on about 10 million ha in the tropical highlands and lowlands of the world, where it is an important food source. Many farmers in these areas work under subsistence conditions. Wheat diseases in tropical ...
CIMMYT's approach to breeding for wide adaptation
The wheat area in developing countries, including China, is around 100 million ha. To address the needs of these very diverse wheat growing areas, CIMMYT has defined 12 wheat mega-environments (ME). A ME is defined as ...
New wheats for a secure, sustainable future
This paper reviews strategies used by CIMMYT and its partners to develop sustainable wheat production systems for favored and marginal areas. These strategies aim to achieve an optimal combination of the best genotypes ...
