Impacts of international research on intertemporal yield stability in wheat and maize: an economic assessment
Critics of modern maize and wheat varieties (MVs) have suggested that, in developing countries, yields of these varieties vary more from season to season than yields of farmers’ traditional varieties, thereby exposing ...
Adoption and impacts of improved winter and spring wheat varieties in Turkey
Wheat is one of the most important agricultural commodities in Turkey, and the country ranks among the top ten producers in the world. It is a staple and strategic crop, and an essential food in the Turkish diet, consumed ...
Indicators of wheat genetic diversity and germplasm use in the people's republic of China
A preliminary study of wheat genetic diversity in the People's Republic of China is presented. Available evidence and basic data related to the ancestry of leading wheat cultivars and the area distribution of dominant ...
Farmer access and differential impacts of zero tillage technology in the subsistence wheat farming systems of West Bengal, India
The present study was carried out with the broad objective of assessing the patterns of adoption and farm profitability potentials of conservation agriculture (CA) in the three northern “disadvantaged districts” of West ...
Semidwarf bread wheats: names, parentages, pedigrees, and origins
One of CIMMYT's primary functions is to produce germplasm for use by cooperating national crop improvement programs. In the development of wheat germplasm, emphasis is given to producing advanced materials that can be ...
Farmers' seed sources and management of bread wheat in Wolmera Woreda, Ethiopia
(IAR; CIMMYT, 1998)
Because seed supply and cost strongly influence farmers' ability to increase wheat production, researchers undertook a survey to document how Ethiopian farmers in Wolmera woreda acquire, manage and transfer wheat seed. ...
Farmers' wheat seed sources and seed management in Chilalo Awraja, Ethiopia

This study describes the Ethiopian wheat seed system, identifies how farmers acquire and exchange wheat seed, explores problems related to farmers' acquisition and transfer of wheat seed, documents the status of previously ...
The Impact of CIMMYT wheat germplasm on wheat productivity in China
(CIMMYT; CGIAR, 2015)
This study examines the factors that affected wheat total factor productivity (TFP) growth in China, with a focus on China’s collaboration with the wheat breeding program of the International Maize and Wheat Improvement ...
Multilineas: gran proporcion a salvo
Las variedades multilineales -mezclas de líneas geneticamente relacionadas que portan diferentes genes de resistencia a las enfermedades- ofrecen a las agricultores una alternativa para domeñar el surgimiento de epifitias ...
Multilines: safety in numbers
Multiline varieties-mixtures of genetically related lines that have different genes for disease resistance-offer farmers a way to tame outbreaks of rust, thus stabilizing annual wheat yields. CIMMYT is producing large ...
