В третьем выпуске информационного бюллетеня Исследовательской программы по пшенице Консультативной группы по международным сельскохозяйственным исследованиям (the CGIAR Research Program on Wheat (WHEAT) за 2021 год  представлены некоторые последние разработки.

Данной программой руководит Международный центр по улучшению кукурузы и пшеницы (CIMMYT), а Международный центр сельскохозяйственных исследований в засушливых районах (ICARDA) является основным партнером по исследованиям.

Сообщается о последних успехах по созданию и испытанию более продуктивной, устойчивой к болезням пшеницы, включая сотрудничество с партнерами по исследованиям в Казахстане, которое открывает новые перспективные источники генетической устойчивости к пиренофорозу, опасному заболеванию пшеницы. Руководитель научно-исследовательской работы со стороны Казахстана – А.М. Кохметова, член-корреспондент НАН РК, доктор биологических наук, профессор, заведующая лабораторией генетики и селекции Института биологии и биотехнологии растений КН МОН РК.

The WHEAT Wire
a quarterly newsletter from the CGIAR Research Program on Wheat

Greetings WHEAT friends, colleagues and partners,In this third edition of our newsletter for 2021, the CGIAR Research Program on Wheat (WHEAT) is pleased to share some of the latest developments.

In this issue, we are delighted to announce this year’s recipient of the Borlaug Global Rust Initiative (BGRI) Lifetime Achievement Award – our very own WHEAT scientist Ravi Singh. Singh’s elite wheat varieties reduced the risk of a global pandemic and now feed hundreds of millions of people around the world.

We’re proud to share the latest updates on our work in developing and testing more productive, disease resistant wheat, including a collaboration with research partners in Kazakhstan which unlocks promising new sources of genetic resistance to tan spot disease.

We also highlight the important role that WHEAT research programs and partnerships have played in developing more environmentally-friendly and climate-resilient wheat – including new studies illustrating how CIMMYT nitrogen-efficient varieties can provide more food while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and how WHEAT scientists are bridging the gap between theory and practice to boost climate resilience in wheat.

As we wrap up the final year of the CGIAR Research Programs, including WHEAT, we look forward to working with our CGIAR colleagues as we transition to One CGIAR. Together, we will ensure that scientific innovations for food, land and water systems can be deployed faster, at a larger scale, and at a reduced cost. We have just launched our new WHEAT Legacy website, designed to showcase our impact achieved over the last 10 years, which we will spotlight in our next newsletter.

We hope you enjoy this latest Wheat Wire issue. We look forward to keeping in touch on our website or on facebook.

Best regards,

The WHEAT Communications Team
