Downy mildew is a common sunfl ower disease found in North Dakota and other northern Great Plains states and is capable of killing or stunting plants (Figure 1), reducing stands and causing yield loss. According to NDSU sunflower-disease surveys done between 2001 and 2008, 29 percent of North Dakota fi elds had downy mildew, and the disease was found in all sunfl ower growing areas of the state. When downy mildew is sporadic throughout the fi eld, sunfl owers are able to compensate for the infected plants and limit the amount of yield loss. However, downy mildew often occurs in heavily diseased patches, which limits the plants’ abilities to compensate for the infected areas on a fieldwide scale.
