A series of partner field days held in Kenya, September 2018 allowed CIMMYT to share the latest developments in maize and wheat research with partners including KALRO (Kenya Agriculture & Livestock Research Organization) and members of IMIC (International Maize Improvement Consortium). The field visits, at Kiboko and Naivasha research stations involved the assessment of a variety of crop improvement and farming innovations including double haploid technology, maize lethal necrosis screening and sustainable intensification practices. Attendees also had the opportunity to interact with a new seed quality digital platform called SeedAssure and evaluate new maize hybrid varieties.
