CIMMYT Seed Ready to Send

Post date: Aug 26, 2012 6:44:35 AM

CIMMYT (International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center) does a tremendous amount of research on varieties adapted to local conditions. Here you see a picture of Seed Maize ready to send out to African Seed Producers. This is Basic and Pre-Basic seed that will be planted and crossed with other maize varieties to produce a local, adapted variety that farmers can plant. Lots of work but worth it in the long run.
