Glen H. Stringfield

Glen H. Stringfield, one of the nation's outstanding corn research workers, came to Ohio from Nebraska more than 40 years ago. As an employee of the U. S. Department of Agriculture, he was attached to the Experiment Station at Wooster.

In his corn breeding work he developed strains with resistance to corn borers, leaf aphids, leaf blight, stalk rot and other pests. Other inbred lines were developed which provided tolerance to heavy stands. Stringfield authored nearly 80 articles or papers on corn and corn breeding.

After retiring from Wooster, Stringfield joined the corn research staff of the DeKalb Agricultural Association in Illinois. He retired last year from this position and now does consulting work for Ohio Foundation Seeds, DeKaIb and the University of Illinois agronomy program.
