CIMMYT Annual Report 2014 ‘Turning research into impact’ now available online
Looking to the future for maize and wheat, projections hold that farmers will need to grow at least 60 percent more grain to feed a planet of 9 billion-plus people by 2050. They must do so using the same or less land, confronting more extreme and erratic rainfall and temperatures, and with more efficient use of increasingly scarce inputs like water and fertilizer.

As the stories in this report illustrate, only by all of us working together – international centers, national research and extension systems, advanced research institutes, governments, non-government organizations, private companies, funders, farmers, and many other actors – can we generate and make available the technologies needed by farmers to help shape a more food-secure, prosperous, and environmentally sound future for humanity.
