Trends in varietal diversity of main staple crops in Asia and Africa and implications for Sustainable Food Systems
- Impact Area
A recent study from the International Potato Center (CIP) calls attention to downward trends in varietal diversity in major cropping systems in Asia and Africa. As climate change impacts continue to affect agriculture, these trends have significant (potentially worrying) implications for ensuring future yields and food system resilience around the world. Published in the journal Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems, and co-authored with scientists from the International…
