Corn, Soybean and Wheat Quality Research Unit
The mission of the Corn, Soybean and Wheat Quality Research Unit is to increase quality, pest and pathogen resistance in corn, soybean and wheat through research to:
- understand and monitor existing and emerging viruses that infect maize and soybean, including their transmission, management, and crop resistance to disease;
- use genetic improvement for increasing seed quality and pest resistance in soybeans for the northeast U.S.; and,
- improve end-use quality and value of soft wheat through evaluation, biochemistry and genetic research.
