The Seasonal Availability Calendar Booklet, developed by Bioversity International in association with communities and local partners in Guatemala, India and Mali, makes agrobiodiversity and nutritional data easily accessible to local communities.

Rapidly emerging and evolving races of wheat stem rust and stripe rust disease—the crop’s deadliest scourges worldwide—drove large-scale seed replacement by Ethiopia’s farmers during 2009-14.

Based on two surveys conducted by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and the Ethiopian Institute of Agricultural Research (EIAR) and involving more than 2,000 Ethiopian wheat farmers, the study shows that farmers need access to a range of genetically diverse wheat varieties whose resistance is based on multiple genes.

Is agricultural adaptation on track to meet the future food production challenge?

Smallholder farmers around the world are facing enormous challenges.
