Effect of planting date and population on seed and oil yield of a hybrid sunflower variety grown in winter



Effect of planting date and population on seed and oil yield of a hybrid sunflower variety grown in winter



Zimbabwe Agricultural Journal 80(3): 99-102



Trials at Gwebi in 1980 with sunflower S0 208 sown on 3 dates at between-row spacings of 45 or 90 cm showed that April sowing gave the highest dry wt. of heads/msuperscript 2 and 1000-seed wt., but that June sowing gave the highest seed yield and oil content. Av. seed yield/ha was 1.82, 1.39 and 2.61 t for April, May and June sowing, resp. High sowing density decreased 1000-seed wt. and oil content but increased seed yield/ha.
