Maize and wheat provide food for most of humanity. Erratic weather, poor soil health, and resource shortages keep millions of maize and wheat farmers in developing countries from growing enough to feed their households and communities or to harvest a surplus to sell. This threatens their survival and even national stability. Yet our staple foods are stronger than we know.
CIMMYT scientists and partners are conserving and using the powerful traits found within the thousands of maize and wheat seed collections to strengthen crops to produce healthy food and better livelihoods.
