FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- Sunflowers growers are gathering in Fargo to get the latest information as they prepare for the spring planting season.

Researchers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, North Dakota State University, South Dakota State, Kansas State, Colorado State and Iowa State will present their findings on sunflower studies they've conducted.

Topics will include dealing with diseases and insects, protecting sunflowers from blackbirds and preventing combine fires during harvest.
