IFPRI Special Event: Tales of Yield Improvement

    April 5, 2018
    Washington, DC, USA

Yield growth is essential for people and the planet. But what should we breed and for what should we breed under a more erratic climate, growing natural resource scarcity, and new disease threats? What is the role for better agricultural and food systems management and more adaptive institutions? Can yield growth help reduce environmental damages from agriculture, and help end hunger, micronutrient deficiencies and obesity?

Agriculture & Food Systems Institute Executive Director, Dr. Morven McLean, numbered among the distinguished set of experts invited to address the issue of yield growth at an International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) special event honoring Dr. Mark Rosegrant’s work over the last 40 years.
