Administrative / Biographical History
In the spring of 1962 a group of scientists travelled to Africa to carry out the collection of forage types in Morocco and Tunisia. The party was led by the agronomist J.O. Green of the Grassland Research Station, Hurley, and included D.G. Miles, agronomist, of the Plant Breeding Station, Aberystwyth; D.G. Morgan, plant physiologist, of the School of Agriculture, Cambridge; and H.H. Rogers, plant breeder, of the Plant Breeding Institute, Cambridge. The expedition was intended to further the work of an intensive research programme at Cambridge and Hurley on the breeding, agronomy and physiology of grasses native to North Africa.
