A researcher checks up on wheat seed stored in a climate-controlled warehouse at the Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute's Wheat Research Centre (WRC) in Dinajpur. Making improved seed available to farmers can enable them to achieve better yields, food security and incomes. CIMMYT works in partnership with local institutions like WRC across the world, with scientists working hand-in-hand. In Bangladesh WRC is a key CIMMYT partner, in a collaboration that helps reach farmers with improved varieties, technologies and practices.
