Abstract

History

The introduction of potentially useful plant species into the United States dates back to the early 19th century when embassies were asked to collect and import these materials.A more organized effort was established when the Section of Seed and Plant Introduction was formed in 1898 within the USDA. No provisions were made, however, to store these materials adequately and much was lost (Wilson et al. 1985).

Comments

This is a proceeding from First National Symposium on New Crops (1990): 84.
