The IPNI Global Maize Initiative is a coordinated research and technology transfer effort to narrow the gap between current and potential maize yields through improved crop and nutrient management while minimizing negative environmental impacts. Participating IPNI scientists (Directors) oversee project activities in their respective regions carried out by a center team consisting of collaborating scientists in research institutions and cooperating farmers, advisors and government representatives. A total of fourteen project center teams are currently being set up in China, India, Southeast Asia, North America, Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, and Argentina. This will form a network of research centers and scientists using common objectives working toward narrowing the yield gap. Anticipated deliverables include nutrient management decision support tools, crop management planning tools, global management and response databases, and guidelines for improving maize yields and nutrient management in each region.
