For over 50 years, the Crop Development Centre has been dedicated to creating resilient and successful crop varieties. Together with producers, we are feeding the world today and building a sustainable future for generations to come. 


Our history



To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Crop Development Centre, we have developed a video that showcases our beginnings and successes over the past five decades.


Success Grows our Future

We are proud of our past! "Success Grows our Future", our golden anniversary magazine summarizes the past five decades of our partnerships, our people, and some of the challenges along the way.  You will meet our leadership, get a summary of successes by decade, and get to know the dedicated people that make the Crop Development Centre the research institution it is today.
