The National Sclerotinia Initiative (NSI) employs an integrated and collaborative approach to guide research on the effective development of diagnostic technologies, disease management systems, genomic resources, and crop germplasm that provide durable resistance to Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, also known as white mold.  Now in its 19th year, the Initiative is working to engage as many researchers as possible to help identify new knowledge and new technologies to combat this serious disease. We look forward to your attendance at this year’s Annual Meeting, which will be organized to share recent progress from existing projects and to seek new collaborative activities across project teams.


We look forward to seeing you in virtually this January!

Michael A. Grusak
