Technical Abstract: This document is a summary of a slideshow presented at the National Sunflower Association’s annual Research Forum in Fargo, ND, in January 2008. Background information was provided about new staff in the Sunflower Genetics programs as well as progress during this, the transitional year. Studies to be conducted in the upcoming year were discussed. These studies included a project using backcross marker-assisted selection to introduce Sclerotinia resistance into confection sunflower from a oilseed sunflower source, a project to breed for Phomopsis resistance, as well as a set of studies on insect host-plant resistance in the northern and central Plains. Information was provided regarding upgrades to greenhouse facilities and data handling in our projects.
