CIMMYT - International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center

“One CIMMYT’s” unifying vision and mission will emphasize scientific excellence, capacity building, and impact through partnerships. “In addition to getting better varieties to farmers faster”

CIMMYT fights hunger and poverty in the developing world through smarter agriculture. We are the world's number one caretaker and developer of maize and wheat, two of humanity's most vital crops. We are probably best known for prompting the Green Revolution, which saved millions of lives across Asia and led to CIMMYT's Norman Borlaug receiving the Nobel Peace Prize.
