Greenhouse Trials of Hybrid Geranium Production
This year the hybrid geranium trials took on new significance, as data on similar cultivars were recorded at two very different locations in the United States. The well known trials conducted at Michigan State University in previous years (BPI News, July 1979, November, 1980) were joined with trials at the University of Georgia. We received cultivars from Pan American Seed, Goldsmith Seed, and Sluis and Groot Seed for evaluation. Twenty cultivars were tested at Michigan State University, while 32 were evaluated at the University of Georgia. This report will present only those 14 cultivars common to both locations; information on other cultivars will be forthcoming in a later issue.
