With heavy hearts, we mourn the passing of Prof. Dr. Rainer Schultze-Kraft, whose indelible legacy will forever enrich the fabric of our research in tropical forages germplasm. Dr. Schultze-Kraft dedicated over five decades of his life to advancing agricultural knowledge and safeguarding forages germplasm worldwide.

Arriving at CIAT (now the Alliance of Bioversity and CIAT) in 1973, Dr. Schultze-Kraft embarked on a remarkable journey of exploration and discovery. His pioneering spirit led him on 39 germplasm collection missions across Latin America, Asia, and Africa. In remote corners of the globe, he tirelessly traversed rugged terrain, driven by an unwavering commitment to preserving biodiversity and securing the future of our planet’s forage resources.
