Pennsylvania Flower Growers #166
The Agricultural Experiment Station of The Pennsylvania State University is supporting an extensive research program on the many phases of geranium production and breeding. The floriculture and plant breeding .sections of the Department of Horticulture .are collaborating with the Department of Entomology and the Department of Plant Pathology to study the cultural aspects including methods of propagation, .soil mixes, watering methods, nutrition and disease and insect control as well as varietal improvement through genetics and breeding. This research may be cited as an example of how much more can be accomplished when several scientists with different but related specialties work together than any one working alone. The work described here is the combined efforts of Dr. J. W. Mastalerz and Dr. J. W. White in floriculture; Dr. J. Tammen and Mr. J. F. Knauss in plant pathology; Dr. R. J. Snetsinger in entomology; Dr. R. Craig, Mr. W. W. Knicely and Dr. D. E. Walker in plant breeding.
