On the road with Dr Hans Braun

“During 140 breeding cycles, CIMMYT has continually crossed the best material identified at different locations, accumulating the biodiversity that allows our wheat to cope well with climate variability,” Dr Braun said. “At CIMMYT, we believe this adaptability is important to achieving yield stability.”

My presence is more about seeing the trial sites and understanding the Australian growing environments, [...] I think it is important that the CIMMYT scientists come here to ‘calibrate their eyes’ so we can select material for CAIGE in a way that is relevant to Australian growers
