||Between August 1974 and April 1975, the staff of this center conducted a program review. About 40 senior staff members comprised a panel which examined the research plots in the second cycle of 1974. Field visits required 4 days. Seminars were then held in the conference room to discuss questions of research method. When significant differences of opinion were found, a smaller staff group was designated to produce a staff study. Out of this 8-month process came a summary of activities presented in this booklet. Seven topics which received extra study by small groups are summarized in the back as special reports. This publications serves as a record of CIMMYT's accountability to its donors, for the year under review. The report understates CIMMYT's indebtedness to its collaborators including: First, the world-wide network of maize and wheat scientists who conduct the international trials. Second, about 80 governments of Asia, Africa, and Latin America whose search for better foodcrop technology is the driving force in our work. Finally, the constant support of the Mexican Ministry of Agriculture, the Mexican faculties of agriculture, and Mexican farm groups who share with us their seeds, their research facil ities, their private farmlands, and their production experience -all to benefit food producers outside of Mexico.
