The Product Catalogue is an evolving compilation of a diverse array of products derived from tangible outputs of projects supported in whole or in part by the CGIAR Generation Challenge Programme. As projects mature, more products are added. Products are listed under the specific project crop or Global. Under each crop, you will find diverse types of products, such as germplasm, markers, genomics resources and informatics applications. Global includes products applicable to several or all crops and generally includes informatics tools and learning materials. We consider all catalogued products as useful. However, our user base is highly varied and includes upstream as well as downstream plant scientists. Not all products will be of direct interest to breeders. Consequently, a BUL (Breeding Use Level) rating has been provided to indicate the direct usefulness of products to breeders:
|Breeding Use Levels|
|1|| Ready to use for breeding|
(I.e. predictive markers, germplasm of acceptable agronomic type containing a well-defined and characterized trait, and etc.).
|2|| Qualified use for breeding|
(i.e germplasm in which trait genetics have not been well defined or markers that may be informative but not necessarily predictive).
|3|| Indirectly useful for breeding|
(i.e. genomic resources from which downstream products for breeding are developed and many informatics applications).
|4|| Not developed for breeding, per se|
(i.e. miscellaneous information as socio-economic reports).

|Product Number||G3005.09, G4008.26|
|Product||UMUCASS33, a disease-resistant, high-yielding variety of cassava released in Nigeria, 2010|
|Description||This new variety brings together the best from South American and African cassava. South America is cassavas centre of origin. South American cassava has a higher nutritional content, while African cassava tends to be more resilient to pests, disease and harsh environments. CIAT provided the South American cassava, while the local variety resistant to cassava mosaic disease (CMD) was developed from material obtained from the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA).

|Current Use||Farmer cultivation and breeding material.|
