Research trends on seed development, dormancy, germination, emergence and seedling vigour of sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) - a review



Research trends on seed development, dormancy, germination, emergence and seedling vigour of sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) - a review



Research on Crops 6(1): 1-13



Sunflower is an important edible oil. Several factors affect development of sunflower seed, and its emergence and seedling establishment in the field. Methods of pollination and types of honeybees influence seed production. Several biochemical processes occur during seed development in mitochondria and various enzymatic activities which are again influenced by temperature and other environmental factors. Dormancy is associated with the accumulation of ABA in the matured seed after harvest.
