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:

  1. understand and monitor existing and emerging viruses that infect maize and soybean, including their transmission, management, and crop resistance to disease;
  2. use genetic improvement for increasing seed quality and pest resistance in soybeans for the northeast U.S.; and,
  3. improve end-use quality and value of soft wheat through evaluation, biochemistry and genetic research.
