Chinese visitors seek partnerships in conservation agriculture

December 8, 2009

ObregonA delegation of eight scientists from the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) and China Agricultural University (CAU), Beijing, arrived in Mexico on 28 November and traveled the following day to Ciudad Obregón. They spent three days touring the Yaqui Valley to learn about activities in CIMMYT’s northern Mexico conservation agriculture (CA) hub. On 01 December, they returned to El Batán to familiarize themselves with CA activities there, until their departure for China on 03 December. Their visit is associated with efforts to develop new collaborative activities between CIMMYT and relevant Chinese institutions to generate and promote locally-adapted CA cropping practices for major Chinese maize and wheat production systems.
