Objectives:

  • To test interspecific hybrids previously obtained for disease resistance.
  • To design methods to redifferentiate plants from bean tissue culture by examining the effects of novel hormone metabolites recently isolated from bean embryos.

Objectives:

  1. Test carrot breeding lines developed in the U.S. Department of Agriculture carrot breeding program for resistance to the motley dwarf virus complex.

Supersweet corn variety yield and processing trial

Objectives: To evaluate yield, uniformity, plant characteristics, and ear characteristics in the field, and processed quality of new varietal introductions of supersweet (sh2) corn.

Screening for sources of resistance to head smut in corn

corn

Objectives:

  • Test Plant Introduction lines and other germplasm sources for high field resistance to head smut.
  • Determine if immunity or true seedling resistance exists in germplasm sources.
  • Test commercial F1 hybrids and inbreds for head smut resistance.

Green Bean Breeding and Evaluation

Objectives: Breed bush green beans for the western Oregon processing industry with:

  • Improved yield potential and dependability
  • Improved straightness, texture, and other quality factors
  • Develop easy picking and small pod strains of Blue Lake type
  • Resistance to white mold and root rot

Objectives:

  • To determine the effects of planting dates and plant populations on yield and ear characteristics (especially length and tip-fill) of Jubilee sweet corn at the OSU Vegetable Research Farm.
  • To determine the relationship between plant populations and yield and ear characteristics in commercial plantings of sweet corn in grower fields.
