OPGC Begonias featured in OFA Bulletin

June 25, 2012

A story about begonias and the OPGC appeared in the May/June issue of the OFA Bulletin.  The story highlights the selection of begonias as the OPGC's signature plants for 2012.  It also describes some of the opportunities and challenges associated with managing a germplasm collection that seeks to do justice to one of the most important floriculture crops as well as one of the largest genera of angiospersms.  OFA - the Association of Horticulture Professionals - will be sponsoring a Workshop on the commercial growing of begonias on 14 July 2012 as part of the annual OFA Short Course and Trade Show.
