Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative

The Vegetable Improvement Newsletter (1959-1982)

The Vegetable Improvement Newsletter (VIN) was started in 1959 by the Committee on Vegetable Breeding and Varieties of the American Society for Horticultural Science. VIN was intended as a vehicle to facilitate the exchange of information and seed stocks among individuals concerned with the breeding or testing of new varieties of vegetables. VIN regularly contained sections on research notes, variety announcements, stocks available, and stocks desired. In many ways, VIN was a forerunner and inspiration to CGC and the CGC Report.

VIN was compiled for 24 years by Henry M. Munger (1959-1962, 1965-1982) and D.H. Wallace (1963-64) of Cornell University. Of special interest was the Research Notes section, which carried reports of breeding techniques, monogenic mutations, germplasm evaluation, interspecific and intergeneric recombination, and other items of interest to vegetable breeders and geneticists. Much of this information is still of interest. There is also a combined table of contents available:

CGC has completed digitizing the Research Notes section from back issues VIN and is now making them available at this web site.
