The CIMMYT Maize Germplasm Bank: genetic resource preservation, regeneration, maintenance, and use
Originally developed as background information for participants in a 1992 external review of the CIMMYT Maize Germplasm Bank and related activities, this publication recounts CIMMYT's role in the early work of marshalling ...
Wheat genetic resources at CIMMYT: their preservation, enrichment, and distribution
Prior to the late 18th century, agricultural practices were totally dependent on crude handtools, crop landraces, and mixtures of these landraces. Then came the Industrial Revolution with an associated population explosion ...
IRD CIMMYT: the apomixis project -- a revolution in seed technology sows new hope in farmers' fields
(IRD; CIMMYT, 1998)
Poor and subsistence farmers, lacking hybrid and improved maize varieties, struggle daily to eke out an existence from low yielding plants that offer little resistance to destructive insects and diseases. In many of the ...
