ICARDA Annual Report 1979-1980
Communication Team ICARDA. (1/1/1981). ICARDA Annual Report 1979-1980. Beirut, Lebanon: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
In sharp contrast to the previous cropping season which was exceptionally dry, the 1979-80 season throughout the ICARDA region was characterized by high rainfall which has been reflected in above-average crop yields. As this report goes to press, the ICARDA staff are completing the final stages of the best harvest yet reaped by the Center at its Tel Hadya site at Aleppo. Variability in the weather is part of the way of life where rainfed agriculture is concerned and should be noted and accepted with out undue comment. Other changes may take place which are considerably more important and which demand attention in a report of this nature.
