"The purpose of this paper is to summarize some of CIMMYT's experiences with the adaptation of NT to smallholder conditions in the tropics and sub-tropics. The scope of the present paper is too narrow to review all of CIMMYT's NT experiences over the years. Instead, this chapter will focus on three contrasting cases of ongoing research and development across the developing world. These cases follow a section that discusses NT in relation to CA. Following the case studies, the paper continues with a discussion on NT innovation systems and impact pathways." (Excerpt from Introduction)
