Additional Information



This booklet summarizes the accomplishments and impacts of ICRISAT from 1997 to 2003. Our successes in these endeavors is proof positive that ICRISAT has competently and enthusiastically addressed the major challenges facing agriculture in the semi-arid tropics. Much of our success has been achieved by improving our five mandate crops – chickpea, pigeonpea, groundnut, sorghum and pearl millet. Our remarkable successes with crop improvement have been widely recognized. Between 1997 and 2003, ICRISAT received more than 40 team and individual awards. Of these, none were more prestigious than our King Baudouin Awards. This biennial prize is awarded to the CGIAR institute achieving the most visible impact over the preceding two-year period. ICRISAT has won this award an unsurpassed three times. In 1996, we won the award for our success with pearl millet. In 1998, we won the award for the second time in a row for our work with pigeonpea. And in 2002, along with our sister center ICARDA, we completed the hat trick with our research on chickpea. Three victories out of four nominations is an achievement no other center has yet accomplished! But we are not about to sit on our laurels. ICRISAT intends to move forward ever more vigorously with its partners, sowing further seeds of success. Our ultimate goal – winning the Grey to Green Revolution in the semi-arid tropics – is within our grasp.
