corn field study

A new study finds that three corn varieties bred for drought resistance also stand up better to the Banks grass mite when drought conditions set in—a potential boon to growers in regions with diminishing water supplies. Julian Golec, Ph.D., former postdoctoral researcher at Utah State University (now a field scientist at Corteva Agriscience) and a co-author on the study, appears in the center of the field.
