Technical Abstract: We have described the Helianthus L. germplasm collection in the National Plant Germplasm System of the United States. This collection is held at the North Central Regional Plant Introduction Station in Ames, IA where we work to acquire, maintain and characterize the collection as well as to conduct germplasm-related research. Sunflower germplasm is available at no cost for research, crop improvement and product development worldwide.
