R.F. Baker Center for Plant Breeding

plant breeding introduction

Welcome

Plant breeding programs at Iowa State University are recognized throughout the world for their very significant contributions to the productivity and quality of crop cultivars. These programs have been unique because they have integrated basic research on breeding methods and germplasm enhancement with the development of improved cultivars. The aim of the R.F. Baker Center for Plant Breeding is to see that mission realized.
