Cross-continental collaborations facilitated by the CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture thrive to beat back the threat of wheat blast in Brazil and Bangladesh.
‘We need to do ‘preemptive breeding’ if we want to sustain bean production under the more erratic climate of the future’
Standardizing data is central to the success of the Global Crop Improvement Network to improve global integration of crop research.
Partners in the International Wheat Yield Partnership (IWYP) are finding evidence that increased photosynthesis, through high biomass, improvements in photosynthetic efficiency, and improved plant architecture, can help make wheat more productive.
The breeding and dissemination of improved crop varieties has been a central feature of CGIAR research since the earliest days of the Green Revolution.
