Corn Breeding for Quality

Published Feb 9, 2004

PFI farmers in 2003 continued working with corn breeders to develop varieties with high nutrient contents and seed that can be saved and planted again. The 2003 growing season was the last one of a three-state SARE grant that examined available germplasm, and it was the first year of another project that is allowing ISU and USDA breeders to bring new varieties into existence.
