  1. The effects of seed class and seed density on supersweet corn plant stand, plant development, and yield were examined using a single lot of Crisp 'N Sweet 710. Seed class and seed density can be controlled in packaging supersweet corn seed and could provide a means to more reliable plant stand establishment.

Green Bean Breeding


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

  • Improved potential for high yields at favorable sieve sizes 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
