CIMMYT maintains one of the world’s largest and most diverse maize and wheat seed collections and is best known for work leading to the Green Revolution—the widespread adoption of improved crop varieties and farming practices that saved millions of lives across Asia and for which CIMMYT’s Dr. Norman Borlaug was awarded the 1970 Nobel Peace Prize. CIMMYT (http://www.cimmyt.org/en/) is a member of the CGIAR Consortium and receives support from national governments, foundations, development banks, and other public and private agencies.
