Hybrid sunflowers for higher yields

Hybrid sunflowers for higher yields

Seeds and Farms 6(3): 27-29

The new sunflower hybrid BSH-1 and the standard Russian Armavirtsky-3497 gave 4-yr av. seed yields of 1.49 and 0.99 t/ha, resp., under rain-fed conditions and 2-yr av. yields of 2.73 and 1.96 t with irrigation. BSH-1 resists rust infection, tolerates Alternaria tenuis infection and drought, matures in 85-90 days, has a plant ht. of 110-120 cm, 1000-seed wt. of 45 g and seed oil content of 46%.
