“We’re here to learn,” Barnes said. “It’s pretty amazing all the things CIMMYT is working on, it’s not just crop yields and wheat rust.”

He’s joined by students and faculty from other universities including North Carolina State University, University of California at Davis, Kansas State University and Ohio State University. Together they represent the Triticeae Coordinated Agricultural Project, an effort supported by the USDA to bring together wheat and barley researchers from across the country.
