From nanotechnology to raspberries, Virginia Tech inventions and creations can improve our lives

ction primarily in Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, and southern Indiana and Illinois. This variety is resistant to powdery mildew and has very high grain volume weight and good milling and baking quality.

  • VA94-54-479, adapted to the mid-Atlantic and Deep South. It is early maturing and short in plant height and has high yield potential. It is resistant to powdery mildew and stem rust. It is moderately resistant to Hessian Fly and stripe rust. Released as USG 3209, it is widely grown, particularly in the deep south.

  • Century II, adapted to the mid-Atlantic and mid-South. This variety is high yield, early maturing, and has high grain volume weight. It is moderately resistant to leaf and stem rust.

  • Pocahontas, which is adapted primarily to the mid-Atlantic region. At the time of its release, it was resistant to powdery mildew. It is an early maturing variety with high grain volume weight and very good milling quality.

    The soybean varieties are:

    • Accomac, which is resistant to soybean cyst nematode -- the only Virginia Tech variety with that quality. Yields are similar to Hutcheson, a standard variety also developed at Virginia Tech. Accomac is being grown mostly in Virginia and Arkansas.

    • MFS591, a small-seeded soybean that was released to Montague Farms and is marketed in Japan. Such soybeans are used to prepare natto, a popular dish. MFS 591 was developed to meet the Japanese desire for a softer seed with less calcium content and higher sucrose than Vance and Camp soybeans, previously developed by Virginia Tech for this special market.
