The Borlaug Global Rust Initiative 2013 Technical Workshop will be held August 19-22, 2013, in New Delhi, India, at the Taj Palace Hotel.
In 2012, India produced 93 million tons of wheat for its 1.2 billion people. The success of India’s wheat production today is due to the efforts of Indian farmers, scientists, and Dr. Norman Borlaug, whose vision and tenacity helped reverse the bleak food security situation in Pakistan and India in the 1960s. In the 50 years since Borlaug first set foot on the subcontinent, India has progressed from being a food deficit country to a food sufficient country.
The BGRI 2013 Workshop will be held in India to commemorate Dr. Borlaug’s achievements there.
