In the early 1990s, Charles Sciple got a phone call asking him to journey to Uzbekistan.

The country had recently declared independence from the dissolved Soviet Union, Sciple said, and a crew from Australia had a contract to assist the Uzbeks with agricultural development. Sciple had served as director of the Mississippi Seed Testing Lab at Mississippi State University, and this crew wanted him to use this expertise to help establish three seed testing plants in Uzbekistan.
