CIMMYT 1989 Annual report: Beyond subsistance -- New options for Asian farmers
The productivity of Asia's agriculture has increased dramatically during the past quarter century, enabling many of the region's poor to move beyond subsistence. For the region to move further along that path, while ...
CIMMYT in 1993: Helping the poor through innovative agricultural research
We begin our report with examples of innovative efforts to build better plants - new maize and wheat varieties with improved yield potential, greater efficiency in the use of scarce agricultural resources, and stronger ...
CIMMYT 1990 Annual Report: sustaining agricultural resources in developing countries: contributions of CIMMYT research
In this century, agricultural productivity in many developing contries increased dramatically, spurring economic growth and improving the well-being of hundreds of millions of the world's poor. As the next millennium ...
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 ...

This document describes wheat's origins and the flows of germplasm between various regions of the world. It summarizes some of the tools biological and social scientists use to measure genetic diversity. It examines patterns ...
Wheat breeding: objectives, methodology, and progress
Photosynthetic characteristics of synthetic bread wheats
In the process of genetic improvement of bread wheat, photosynthetic rate per unit leaf area has decreased significantly from the maximum photosynthetic rate (Pmax) of the crop's diploid ancestors (donors of the A, B, and ...
