The project tests, validates and disseminates proven and new technologies to assist smallholder farmers in WANA increase their yields and stabilize wheat-legume production system for food security in the face of increasing climate variability. Using participating WANA countries as a platform, the initiative will extend successes to other regions as international public goods. The project has a three-fold objective: • Promoting proven technologies for wheat-legume rotation systems by scaling out of improved crop varieties and associated production technologies • Identifying and testing new technologies in response to new challenges and conditions • Combining and demonstrating new higher-yield, biotic and abiotic stress tolerant varieties with other interventions, such as integrated pest management and improved crop and soil water management.
