Abstract

The USDA-ARS corn breeding efforts have a long history working with the Iowa State University farm system, dating back to the early 20th century. Research goals and focuses have changed throughout this time; however, current goals concentrate on the development of exotic derived corn cultivars and the understanding of corn genetics within environments. The two USDA-ARS research units consist of a full-time staff of plant geneticists and technicians and include various graduate research associates and undergraduate research students, conducting the research and experiments to achieve their missions’ goals.
