A new dawn

A farmer walks to his plot in the Bamiyan district of Afghanistan. After decades of conflict, agriculture in the Central Asian country is improving year-on-year, helped by a long-term wheat improvement and seed production programme led by FAO and implemented by CIMMYT. The project aims to ensure the supply of quality seed to the country's long-suffering farmers.
