Practical guide to the identification of selected diseases of wheat and Barley
Selecting disease resistant germplasm is an essential component of breeding programs–in this case, wheat and barley programs. To achieve its objectives, the CIMMYT wheat program sistematically and consistently causes ...
Developing production of a non-traditional crop in Southeast Asia: wheat in Thailand
Urbanization has led to increased wheat imports by nontraditional, wheat producing countries. Globally, Southeast Asia has had the most rapid increase in wheat consumption. Over the past decade, Thailand, Indonesia, the ...
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 ...
Ensuring the use of sustainable crop management strategies by small wheat farmers in the 21st century
Virtually all current strategies to implement modern, sustainable crop management production practices involve conservation/zero tillage prior to seeding, some form of crop residue retention and management, fertilizer ...
Bread wheat, durum wheat, and synthetic hexaploid wheat in saline and non-saline soils
Genetic improvement of crops for salt tolerance will become ever more important as it becomes necessary to cultivate marginal soils. The work reported here evaluated the intra- and interspecific variability in yield response ...
New wheat varieties and the small farmer
The distribution of the benefits of new agricultural technologies is the subject of continuing controversy, especially following the widespread adoption of new wheat and rice varieties in developing countries over the last ...

The purpose of CIMMYT's Classification and Compensation System for Internationally Recruited Staff is to ensure equitable treatment and foster the long-term development of CIMMYT's scientific and managerial staff. The ...
Collective action for the conservation of on-farm genetic diversity in a center of crop diversity: an assessment of the role of traditional farmers' networks
(IFPRI; CGIAR; CIMMYT, 2005)
This project explored the possible role of collective action among small-scale farmers in managing and maintaining genetic resources in a center of crop diversity. It focused on the local institutions that ensure the supply ...
Data analysis in the CIMMYT applied biotechnology center: for fingerprinting and genetic diversity studies
The molecular genetic characterization of the diversity present in the CIMMYT maize and wheat germplasm collections is an ongoing process, to which many different persons have contributed. Furthermore, one of the mandates ...
