Founded in 2015, the Plant Pathology program at the Williston REC is focused on applied research to address disease issues of the diverse crops of NW North Dakota. Crops of focus include durum, lentil, field pea, chickpea and sugar beets. The program seeks to evaluate the efficacy of fungicides, crop rotation and other management techniques on reducing disease and pathogen populations as well as methodologies to increase soil health associations with beneficial microorganisms.
