Drought Tolerance in Tropical Crops

During October-November, CIAT’s Library is exhibiting books, thesis, reports, and other documents on: “Drought Tolerance in Tropical Crops”. The exhibition includes: yield response to drought stress; improving resistance to environmental stress; physiological effects of water stress; breeding and selection for drought resistance; inheritance of drought tolerance, among others. Some of the publications are listed below:
