K5272-1: Agronomist Edgar E. Hartwig in a soybean field

Image Number K5272-1

Sometimes called The Soybean Doctor in deference to his plant-breeding successes, agronomist Edgar E. Hartwig has devoted half a century to soybeans research. His focus has been on developing productive plants with built-in resistance to insects, nematodes, and diseases. He is best known for commercial varieties that include Bragg, Lee, Forrest, Lamar, Sharkey, and most recently, Vernal.
