Cultivar and Germplasm Releases (all crops)

Dr. Todd C. Wehner

More than 40 cultivar and germplasm releases have been released since 1979. In 1993, luffa sponge gourd breeding was started, and germplasm releases are being prepared for that crop. In 1996, watermelon breeding was started, and germplasm releases are being prepared for that crop. Other releases are being prepared as well.
