Margaret Smith

Margaret Smith is a Professor of Plant Breeding and Genetics at Cornell University, focused on corn breeding. Her research is focused on enhancing our understanding of corn adaptation to marginal environments (in the US and internationally), and developing genetic materials that will improve corn productivity and sustainability in such environments. Her research includes understanding the genetics of and genetic variability for improved performance under marginal conditions, developing better selection methods, exploring sources of novel genes to improve key productivity and sustainability traits, and developing and releasing germplasm sources.
