Innovation from the Field


Thriving In The Heat

Season 1, Ep. 1

How do you tackle proposing fundamental changes to established practices and habits? How important is it to see beneficiaries of innovation as co-creators?

In this episode, Dr. Filippo Bassi describes how his team developed a strain of heat-tolerant wheat that is now being successfully cultivated in over a half-dozen countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. Dr. Bassi's project won the 2017 Olam Prize.
