Mexican farmers effectively cultivate phenotypic diversity in maize
A joint IRD-CIMMYT research team (1) studying the maize varieties, or landraces, grown in Mexico have provided the first genetic proof that cultivation practices and farmers' behaviour play a crucial role in maintaining a large diversity by favouring the frequent introduction of varieties from outside. In-situ conservation could therefore be considered as a dynamic model favourable to genetic exchange, rather than a model founded on the isolation of the varieties to be preserved.
