The widely applicable lesson is that close, effective and long term collaboration is required among different players, including germplasm curators, plant breeders, farmers, molecular biologists, entomologists, ecologists, community groups and social scientists. Linkage of efforts at national, regional, and international levels is also critical to deal with globally important agricultural problems, thus to increase the world's food security by maximizing existing resources and production potential.
