“Dedication” for a lifetime’s dedication: Cordova honored by Central American network

December 29, 2006

The 53rd Annual Meeting of the Central American Cooperative Program for the Improvement of Crops and Animals (PCCMCA)—a network established by Edwin J. Wellhausen and L. Sterling Wortman with Rockfeller Foundation support in 1954—will be dedicated personally to CIMMYT maize breeder and Distinguished Scientist Hugo Cordova.

“This is a great honor and distinction for more than 30 years of support to maize research and development in the region,” says Cordova.

The meeting, entitled “Cambios globales: Tendencias, efectos y perspectives para la agricultura de Mesoamérica y El Caribe hacia el 2020,” will be held in Antigua, Guatemala, during 23-27 April 2007.
