Data from new Excellence in Breeding report reveals progress on CGIAR’s transformation
EiB and partners are helping programs leap forward with improvements such as data platform adoption, use of shared genotyping services, digitization of operations, use of computer simulations, application of gender tools early in the planning process, and embedding of continuous improvement approaches.
To battle hunger, poverty and climate change, farmers in low- and middle-income countries need a genetically diverse portfolio of continually improving crop varieties. EiB helps breeders meet this challenge through coordinating efforts and supporting partners to modernize practices and technologies. The aim is to help deliver farmers the seeds they need and will use.
