Welcome to the WIKI-Site for CIMMYT International Courses
CIMMYT works with and brings together public research and extension organizations, private companies, advanced research institutes, NGOs, and farmer associations in countries worldwide, working pragmatically and apolitically to fight hunger and poverty. The Center applies the best science to develop and freely share:
- High-yielding, stress tolerant maize and wheat varieties.
- Large, unique collections of maize and wheat genetic resources.
- Productivity-enhancing, resource-conserving farming practices.
- Training and information relating to the above.
Through these activities and outputs, CIMMYT works to foster global and local food security, helping farmers meet rapidly rising demand from expanding populations and affluence, while addressing the emerging challenges of global climate change and resource degradation and scarcities.
Considering that one of the main mandates of the CIMMYT is the capacity building, we have created this space, as a tool, for all participants of International Courses where they can find presentations, book references, programs, training materials among other interesting information related to.
Enjoy your visit and hope you find this information useful!
