This book is the grandstand of the collaborative endeavours of diverse stakeholders in addressing the challenges of wheat production and wheat rusts in Ethiopia within the context of the international efforts across Africa and Asia. It provides a synthesis of the research for development and rich experience gained in quick deployment of rust resistant wheat varieties through this effective partnership including the Ethiopian Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources and Regional Bureaus of Agriculture, the National Agricultural Research System (NARS), the International Centre for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA), formal and informal seed suppliers, NGOs and farmers.
