Welcome to the D.C. Kiplinger Floriculture Crop Improvement Program in the Department of Horticulture and Crop Science at the Ohio Agriculture Research and Development Center/ The Ohio State University.  This program is led by Dr. Michelle Jones.

The mission of the Floriculture Crop Improvement Program and the D.C.
