New video: Crop biodiversity for healthy, nutritious livelihoods
Maize and wheat provide food for most of humanity.

This threatens their survival and even national stability. Yet our staple foods are stronger than we know.
CIMMYT scientists and partners are conserving and using the powerful traits found within the thousands of maize and wheat seed collections to strengthen crops to produce healthy food and better livelihoods.
