CIMMYT Action Corridors in SA/India

Operate in ten states:

AP, Punjab, Haryana, UP,

Bihar, Jharkhand,


West Bengal,

TN & Karnataka

Positioning of CIMMYT for Food security in India

  • New food to come from eastern Gangetic Plains & Rainfed Mixed farming systems through bridging ‘management yield gaps’, use of ‘Rice Fallows’, diversification and intensification.

  • CA as vehicle for change for sustainable natural resource and crop management to produce more at less cost

  • Improvement in genetic yield potential of wheat for early planting and/or tolerant to terminal heat, nutrient and water use efficient cultivars

  • Development of Maize (Normal , QPMs ) Inbred /Hybrids for high yield potential in Kharif, Rabi, Spring seasons

  • Maize genotypes tolerant to major abiotic stresses and resistance to diseases

  • Capacity building in frontier areas

On-going Research Projects

ICAR-CIMMYT Work plan for Wheat and Maize Systems (2009-12)

Our Direction

  • Customized technologies that farmers want

  • Strong ag professionals on the ground

  • Access to information

  • Linkage with input and output markets

  • Good business models

  • Suitable policies

  • Linkages with large-scale investments

  • Dedicated partners that complement each other and contribute own resources


  • Research Platforms

  • Adaptive Research Trails-Modules

  • Demonstrations-Delivery

  • Communication tools and techniques for large scale delivery

  • PPPs and Service windows

  • Capacity building of NARS, Partners, Farmers, Custom Service providers

Long-term Platforms-RW/RM Systems

Carbon inputs, outputs and sustainability index- Eastern Gangetic Plains

Carbon Sustainability Index- Western Gangetic Plains

Adaptive Research Trials-MODULES

Suitable rice cultivars under different situations-EIGP

Evaluating New Tools for Nutrient Management in CA-Collaboration with IPNI

Incidence of False Smut-Establishment & Nutrient Management Effects

New Machinery-Development & Fine Tuning

  • Multi-crop Seed-cum Ferti attachment for 2WT

  • Turbo seeder

  • PCR planter

  • 2WT relay planter

  • Small farm modular sprayer

  • Hydraulic SMS

  • High clearance tractor

  • Improved Laser bucket for 4 WT

  • Laser leveling system for 2 WT

  • Indigenous limit plot planter

  • Precision seed metering systems

  • Improved furrow opener for ZT planters

  • Off barring-cum-fertilizer applicator for s/c ratoon

Evaluation and fine tuning of Improved technologies (2010)

Economic Benefits of different rolling-out technologies

GCAP & New Seed Systems
