Communication Team ICARDA. (1/1/1989). Cereal Improvement Program 1989. Syrian Arab Republic: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
A significant event that marked the Program's activities was the signing in March 1989 of the new CIMMYT/ICARDA agreement specifying the terms of collaboration for the improvement of spring and facultative wheat in the WANA region. The agreement aims to achieve efficient use of CGIAR resources to increase the benefits from both Centers to NARS. The agreement includes the posting of a CIMMYT wheat scientist at ICARDA and the implementation of a new system of germplasm distribution for WANA. Spring-type germplasm from ICARDA, Aleppo, and CIMMYT, Mexico, will be distributed from ICARDA as joint CIMMYT/ICARDA nurseries for testing in the major archeological zones of WANA.
