About research on Agrobiodiversity in CIAT

Delivering the next generation of vital crops

Standard crop varieties do not always rise to the challenges of modern agriculture: climate change, nutrition and higher productivity on farms. CIAT develops varieties of common bean, cassava and tropical forages (the plants livestock eat) that are often superior to business-as-usual varieties. Because of the 68,000 samples stored in CIAT’s seed bank, scientists around the world accelerate crop development to improve livelihoods, diets and farm resilience to climate change.
