CIMMYT Research Station, Mexico — We are at lunch break here after a morning in the field looking at the wide variety of agricultural research projects at this research center, which some have dubbed the “Cradle of the Green Revolution.” Norman Borlaug began his crop research here in 1944.
The students have wolfed down sandwiches and whipped out laptops to begin writing. Meanwhile, here are a couple of pictures from the morning.
The research station is just south of Ciudad Obregon. CIMMYT (pronounced “Sim-It”) is the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center.
