Dr. Marcia McMullen retired from her NDSU position as Professor and Extension Plant Pathologist in October 2012.  She was a faculty member for 28 years in the NDSU Plant Pathology Department.  Her primary responsibilities were to provide management information for cereal crop diseases and to coordinate the NDSU Extension Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program.  She also did applied research on management strategies for cereal diseases and determined pest risks to crops by helping coordinate field surveys of pests in major crops of North Dakota.  Her primary expertise is with fungal diseases of wheat and barley, including the disease called Fusarium head blight (FHB, or commonly called scab). She co-authored two feature articles on this disease, published in the journal Plant Disease.   She participated in the US Wheat and Barley Scab Initiative on the management committee for many years, and was a member of the Executive Board of that Initiative, as well.  She also served as a north central representative to the National Barley Improvement Committee.    She currently is an Emeritus Professor in the Dept. of Plant Pathology.   During the 2013 year, she is working in a special appointment/part time capacity for the ND Agricultural Experiment Station, assisting in processing and review of federal projects and reports.
