Training at CIMMYT

Author: Centro Internacional de Mejoramiento de Maíz y Trigo (CIMMYT)
Year: 1985
Abstract: Training is a major activity at CIMMYT. The principal objective of the Center's various training programs is to increase the professional expertise of agricultural research personnel in developing countries. After completing their courses of study, CIMMYT trainees are better equiped to meet the challenge of further improving their home countries' capabilities for agricultural research and food production. CIMMYT can hope to train only a fraction of the thousands of agricultural specialists needed by national crop programs. Therefore, CIMMYT attempts to reach those candidates who demonstrate leadership ability and who are potential future research leaders in national programs. Agricultural personnel from developing countries often spend one crop cycle in Mexico fully participating in CIMMYT's research programs. The Center's training philosophy stresses practical and applied skills directed toward increasing the level and dependability of crop yields.
