ICRISAT and Corteva Agriscience™, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont, Collaborate for Sharing Advanced Breeding Technologies to Improve Crops that Feed Millions

A Master Alliance Agreement (MAA) was signed between Peter Carberry, Director General (Acting), ICRISAT, and Tom Greene, Senior Research Director, Corteva Agriscience™. The technology sharing includes CRISPR-Cas gene editing, adapting transformation techniques to new crops, and applying knowledge of plant biochemical pathways with the goal of productivity and quality improvements for crops that feed millions of people. DuPont Pioneer, now part of Corteva Agriscience™, will provide access to intellectual property, material and know-how related to CRISPR-Cas and plant transformation.

Resilience over profitability: Could agricultural research deliver on both?

A new study that looked at the recent research strategy vis-à-vis 45-years of research done by ICRISAT shows that distinct objectives of resilience and profitability have emerged. Sometimes technologies evolve in the labs or on farmers fields and what is good for developing resilience of smallholder farmers turns out to be effective in enhancing profitability or vice versa. Thus highlighting the intent to conduct research with clear focus and to have an open mind at the same time.
