We are happy to report some of ICRISAT's achievements in this past year - achievements that take us closer to our goal and vision of bringing about the well-being of the poor in the semi-arid tropics. The stories we report this year reveal elements of novelty in technologies, trends, and pproaches that we have employed towards making science work for the poor. The super-early chickpea will help farmers avoid the end of season drought, and our scientists are on the threshold of developing the nutrient-rich pearl millet we have pursued for years. In June this year the VOA reported the saving grace of igeonpea in Kenya, giving credit to ICRISAT for the research and development of this precious legume. An exscientist of ICRISAT commented on the VOA report saying, " Pigeonpea demonstrated its superiority during a severe drought - several families we visited survived solely on pigeonpea as it was the only crop that made it in the fi elds." Our story on commercialization of pigeonpea in eastern and southern Africa ighlights the success that pigeonpea brought to the region.
