A Sunflower pathology working group has been formed to help design and facilitate disease-management strategies. The group is funded through a North Central Region-Integrated Pest Management (NCIPM) Center grant and consists of USDA personnel and Extension pathologists from sunflower producing states primarily in the U.S. Plains region.
One of the group's first activities will be to identify the greatest needs for information relating to disease identification and IPM decision-making and the best way to share that information. The group is distributing an online survey that will help determine priorities. Click here to take the online survey.
