Nibbles: Vavilov, Indian rice, Mexican maize, British hops, ICARDA, Turkey feathers

  1. Podcast on Vavilov.
  2. Indian government mainstreams Vavilov.
  3. Debate on maize in Mexico ends up mainstreaming Vavilov.
  4. Vavilov would approve of Fuggle and Golding.
  5. Pretty sure Mariana Yazbek and Vavilov would have got on.
  6. Not sure if Vavilov thought much about livestock domestication, but I expect so, and he would probably have enjoyed this story about Pueblo turkeys too.
