Maximizing spillover benefits

October 17, 2012 at 5:13 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

ICARDA has pioneered the ‘benchmark’ approach, where primary research is conducted at a site representative of a larger agro-ecology, supported by additional research at ‘satellite’ sites. This approach will be further strengthened, with the use of GIS and statistical tools to optimize site selection. Work on genotype x environment interactions will be scaled up, to use the vast data pool (over 30 years of multi-year, multi-environment trials) even more effectively. Wherever possible, research sites for new projects (including Dryland Systems) will overlap with current sites, so that the database is continuously enriched.
