Can you auto-tune science? Wheat seems to think so

I would imagine this is the first time a CGIAR Center has released a song, an auto-tuned song, featuring the late Norman Borlaug, who is often referred to as the ‘father of the green revolution’. I would also put money down to say this is the first time agriculture science has been auto-tuned. (If you have another example, please share with us in the comments below!)

I think this is the kind of creative and innovative digital marketing that agriculture and science research organisations need to exhibit in the noisy online environment. Hats off to you, they say, “We are bringing spirit of Dr. Borlaug to younger generations :)”. And so you are, well done!
