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 ...
Potential impact of research on wheat for acid soils in Brazil
If Brazil's 58,414 small-scale wheat producers could attain a yield increase of at least 15% from improved wheat cultivars (which, on the basis of current agronomic evidence, appears likely), the additional annual benefit ...
Wheat varieties of the Southern Cone Region of South America: Names, parentage, pedigrees and origins
Wheat varieties from South America have been used in many breeding programs, including CIMMYT's Wheat Program. They have played a major role in widening the adaptation of new varieties and increasing their resistance to ...
Wheat, barley, and triticale cultivars: a list of publications in which national scientists have noted the cooperation or germplasm they received from CIMMYT
Sustainable cereal production on farmers' fields: that is the ultimate measure of the impact of CIMMYT's research. Its achievement requires a combination of effective technologies and the most appropriate seeds. Over the ...
Addressing wheat sterility trough nutrient management
Grain set failure or sterility in wheat is an important yield constraint in the rice-wheat system of South and Southeast Asian countries including Bangladesh occurring in some years but not in others. Wheat sterility was ...
Partner survey for the CGIAR Research Program WHEAT: national and international priorities and engagement
This document analyzes 92 responses to a 2012 survey sent by the CGIAR Research Program WHEAT to its more than 200 partners regarding their institutional priorities, engagement and activities under WHEAT strategic initiatives, ...
Overview: transitioning wheat research to serve the future needs of the developing world
For millennia wheat has provided daily sustenance for a large proportion of the world's population. It is produced in a wide range of climatic environments and geographic regions. During 2004-2006, the global annual harvested ...
Present status of wheat improvement in CIMMYT
CIMMYT Wheat Molecular Genetics: laboratory protocols and applications to wheat breeding
It is generally agreed that in order to meet future challenges in food production, multi-faceted breeding approaches are needed, including the use of current available genomics resources. Since more than three decades, ...
The birth of CIMMYT: pioneering the idea and ideals of international agricultural research
The birth of the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) in Mexico was an experiment in applying the idea of international agricultural research for development and the ideals for designing international ...
