Abstract

In addition to productive graduates, practical scientific advances, and progressive extension programs, a major product of the land grant colleges of agriculture has been the development of new varieties or cultivars of plant species adapted to the climate of the area. Land grant plant breeders employ comprehensive scientific processes to develop and then release these adapted cultivars. At Iowa State University (ISU), a wide variety of plant species have been improved and released. The purpose of this article is to list some of the major ISU releases.
