Controlling Blackbird Damage to Sunflower and Grain Crops in the Northern Great Plains

Research and Methods Implementation


The Denver Wildlife Research Center (DWRC), which is part of USDA's ADC program, is the only Federal entity devoted to wildlife damage-control research. DWRC scientists, located in Denver and at field research stations throughout the United States, design and test environmentally safe and cost-effective methods of reducing wildlife-human conflicts. University researchers and private industry also contribute valuable information for solving wildlife problems.

Wildlife management methods developed by these research programs are used under field conditions by ADC's wildlife specialists. Regional headquarters are located in Denver, CO (303 321-6560), and Nashville, TN (615 781-5418). ADC also maintains many State offices, which are usually located in State capitals. We encourage sunflower growers to contact their State's ADC office for assistance with wildlife damage problems.
