Citation: Hulke, B.S. 2009. Summary of research needs for sunflower genetics. Presentation at 31st Sunflower Research Workshop, National Sunflower Association, January 13-14, 2009, Fargo, ND. Available: http://www.sunflowernsa.com/uploads/Hulke_SummarySFGenetics_09.pdf

Interpretive Summary: Genetic research of the sunflower research unit, USDA-ARS, in Fargo, ND, was discussed in a presentation to a group of producers, industry representatives, and scientists. The need for sunflower genetic research is ever increasing with more insect and disease problems nationwide. Combined with a renewed interest in drought tolerance of crops in the central plains, there is much work that can be done. The presentation focused on these research needs, and I discussed how we, with the assistance of our customers and stakeholders, can meet the needs of the sunflower industry in the United States in the years to come.
