More anhydrous ammonia is used as fertilizer in North Dakota than any other nitrogen fertilizer source. Anhydrous ammonia is classified as a hazardous substance. Most accidents with anhydrous ammonia are due to uncontrolled releases. Few problems occur when the ammonia is being handled and applied as intended. Most uncontrolled releases are due to improper procedures, careless or untrained workers, or faulty equipment. Protective equipment is required by law to be available where anhydrous ammonia is handled or applied. Wearing protective equipment greatly reduces the chance of injury from an ammonia release. Countless tons of anhydrous ammonia are applied every crop year without problems; safe procedures and good-quality equipment do work.
Sunflower rust is a disease capable of causing yield loss in all sunflower production regions in the U.S. and Manitoba. Severe infection will decrease head size, seed size, oil content and yield. Sunflower rust epidemics are influenced by environmental conditions and the time of disease onset (when rust first occurs); therefore, incidence and severity vary from year to year. According to data collected from National Sunflower Association-sponsored surveys, the incidence and severity of sunflower rust in the U.S. has increased steadily throughout the 2000s. In North Dakota, sunflower rust commonly is reported, and dramatic yield reductions have been recorded in localized “hot spots.”
